The international version of this film ("The Silent Army") was the original Dutch entry for the Academy Awards' Best Foreign Film. However, the film was turned down because it was a re-cut version. This led to the submission of Oorlogswinter (2008). See more »

A shorter (92 minutes) version that left out all the music and focused less on Marco Borsato was cut under the supervision of French critic, director and editor Pierre Rissient. This version was retitled 'The Silent Army'. See more »
This is one of the most underestimated movies i have ever seen, people go to this movie prejudged as hell! No matter what Marco would have done they would all voted an 1 anyway, they don't recognize acting skills when they see it.. Marco Borsato did a good job in this movie, it was his first movie even!
This movie is really worth going to, a Must-see and everyone of these lame people who voted a 1 and saying that this movie failed, they fell in Marco Borsatos trap! Haha, Marco Borsato used his popularity to get people to go see this movie and FOCUS those people's attention on the whole of children soldier subject, and when you look at this movie you will get focused on that subject trust me!
So all the people who say this movie didn't work and went to it to watch it! The movie surely worked on them! They went there, not cause it would gonna be a great movie, not cause the subject attracts them BUT BECAUSE MARCO BORSATO PLAYED IN IT! they totally fell in the "attract-attention-from-people-trap" and Marco even made this a good movie, double win for Marco! 2-0
