The dialogues were recovered with the help of deaf people, the remaining part of the dialogues were written by Lodewijk de Boer. The voices are spoken by a.o.: Jeroen Krabbé;, Nelly Frijda en Judy Doorman. See more »

a throwback to another era of movie-making
30 January 2005 | by rohitnnnSee all my reviews

The prints of this last Dutch silent movie have recently been restored, and all credit must go to the people who did that, since they have brought a great piece of cinema to life. Some of the shots in the film are truly exquisite, and though the story is almost entirely predictable, the film is eminently watchable as it shows us a glimpse of the society in a country that otherwise remains at the periphery of European cinema, and during a period sandwiched between the two wars. The music is very well done, and the chase sequence during the first bits of the movie can put some more recent ones to shame. If this movie comes to your city, its well worth the cab-fare.
