Adolescent Tom lost his parents and home in the Nazi bombing of Rotterdam. The orphan is taken in on uncle Tjerp's Friesian farm. Old farmhand Bauke gets him a (German!) shepherd puppy, even grumpy Tjerp can't resist their instant bond. As Tjerp feared, the boy takes grave risks wanting to revenge his parents on the German occupation garrison. Finding Dutch RAF gunner Haaksma starts a series of dangerous adventures.

At Least The Dog Was Cute
13 July 2012 | by ndk__See all my reviews

The Dutch have a long-standing tradition of producing horrendous movies, with bad acting, poorly researched historical backgrounds and teeny tiny stories spread out all over the place.

This movie was no exception. Some of the props were nice (uniforms, vehicles), but o my, the dialogs! Too much explanation, too clumsy, and way too much feel good.

My inner child cringed at every bump in the road to perdition.

I'm tempted to end this snarly review with a nasty pun about this being the mother of all snuff movies (as all things lovely about film in general are brutally slaughtered), but that would not be fair on the dog, who admittedly did his very best and had a beautiful smile.
