Storyline

Set in 1896, Tjoet Nja Dhien celebrates one of Indonesia's great heroes who fought for independence from the Dutch. The pious Muslim people of Aceh, a city that had flourished since ancient times as a trade port, enter into a fierce war with the Dutch. Tjoet Nja 'Dhien, the widow of a rebel leader operating in Aceh in Sumatra, assumes the leadership when her husband Teuku Uma is killed in an ambush. 'Dhien's charismatic presence and power of survival motivate the locals to join and later continue their opposition to the Dutch. Despite personal obstacles, she remained in the thick of the struggle for ten years. Written by Anonymous

Dutch soldiers in Aceh during the Aceh war
28 November 2006 | by rudycswoworSee all my reviews

In the Tjoet Nya Dhien film we see indeed a scene where Dutch soldiers pose amidst a large number of dead bodies that were slaughtered by these soldiers. A reader in Australia comments about this scene and wonders whether that scene was just fantasy. The scene was set more or less exactly as shown in a photo that was made by Dutch soldiers after they had slaughtered these villagers. The photo has appeared in many magazines and became the subject of intense debates at the Dutch government in these days. I have seen the photo and beside that I was involved in the preparation of the movie, first to write the Dutch dialogs, then did the casting for those actors who would play a Dutch role. And after that I played myself in the movie, not as Snouck Hurgronje but as Captain VELTMAN, who was the man who "captured" Tjoet Nya.
