Excellent movie "teenager in war' for audience aged 10-110
Oorlogswinter is a very, very special movie around the themes war, love, trust, friendship from the point of view of a 14-year old Dutch teenager in the last winter of World War 2.
beautiful cold winter-setting with lots of snow and original landscapes; - fantastic music from Pino Donaggio; - lots of close shots on excellent actors; - shows both the adventure and the drama of a war.
The 14-year old actor playing the main role is an amazing natural talent in a very realistic story which could happen to every teener in a war-situation.
This is a movie everyone must see between 10 and 110.
Watch out for Oorlogswinter!
