Trivia

The film is based on a play by Herman Heijermans written in 1900, which was the source for three earlier movie adaptations: a silent Dutch movie in 1918, a silent German re-make in 1924, and a Dutch re-make with sound in 1934. Unique to this version is that Mrs Bos (Willeke van Ammelrooy), the wife of the ship's owner, is a bigger influence on her husband, and a romance between her daughter Clementine (Tamar van den Dop) and sailor Barend (Danny de Munk).

Good movie, good view into the old days of the dutch fisherman culture
24 January 2014 | by kranskrampSee all my reviews

It has been a while since i have seen this one. But anyone with a healthy interest in history and drama can appreciate this.

I grew up in a dutch coastal village and i recognized so much in this movie that i value it highly as a view into history.

Even if you are not a fan of the sea or the likes, this movie is still good because of the drama. Everything is in it, love, hate, the lot.

I do not know if there are translated versions of this movie, so it might be just a typical dutch speaking movie.

Great atmosphere, the acting is also very good. Famous dutch actors, but quality is there for sure.
