The first cinema night that the film turned, almost eight thousand visitors came. After ten days, there were more than 100,000, which was a reason for obtaining a Golden Film status. Within five weeks the limit of 300,000 visitors had passed. Free Netherlands,called Bankier van verzet (The Resistance Banker) a 'historic fair of questionable alloys' because of the historical errors. For the Volkskrant, historicity was less of an issue; the film was characterized as 'exciting, simplified, but fine entertainment'.

Stunning film for a great man
12 September 2018 | by ianroboSee all my reviews

We all know the stories of the people who risked all to help others in WW2. This is one I was never aware of before and so when it came up on Netflix, I thought give it a go.

Stunning movie, emotional and a story for the ages and especially now with the far right on the rise. For someone to say it was too slow is crazy and I recommend this film alongside the great WW2 movies.
