Goofs

When Inspector Tongman meets with Thorens, after he unsheathes the dagger, the cigarette in his mouth is about 1/3 ash. When he turns around to face the Inspector, and the camera angle changes, the ash is much smaller although the total length of the cigarette plus ash hasn't changed. See more »

Good movie, dumbest dog in history
26 January 2009 | by benoviteSee all my reviews

Saw this on FMC recently. It's a good movie, very moving, a bit over-dramatic but the story makes up for it. Great production values, good music, wonderful scenery courtesy of Holland. I loved seeing Amsterdam in the early 60's because I was there in 2005- and apparently much hasn't changed in the interim! OK so the dog. Holland is the only country to have a national dog. I learned that from a snapple cap. The national dog(the name escapes me) is the dog that are on the barges, kind of like captain's mates. I learned from this movie that they're very useful when navigating in the fog because they bark and the other barge dogs bark as well so they can tell how far they are.

So why is the barge dog in this movie the dumbest dog? Because the captain/owner is a smuggler, yet when police/inspectors board his barge the dog almost immediately sniffs out the stash area where the illegal stuff is AND on top of that goes to the trouble of opening the stash area for the police for them to see. Wow.

Other than that good movie, you may like the dog and his funny ways. He's probably a narc. ARF!
