Storyline

In the 1930's the Brabant (southern province of the Netherlands) city of Oss was caught up in a crime wave. Even the military police was sent from the north to free the city from the terror regime of the gang of Oss. When they discover sex crimes and fraud even amongst the local clerics and prominent members of the community, the conflict escalates between the catholic south and protestant north which eventually leads to the fall of the 'Colijn' administration, the last operating pre-war administration. During this a young woman Johanna wants to escape from the web of crime that surrounds her. The harder she tries the more she gets stuck in fraud, prostitution, manslaughter and even murder.

For a Dutch movie it's really nice
19 October 2020 | by breintjedelaperloviciSee all my reviews

Dutch movie makers are the worst in the world. Only bollywood movies sucks more. So it surprised me that this movie was pretty good. Also I live nearby Oss, and it's true, they all have knifes. Maybe they think the Germans will give it a third chance and they wanna be prepared. You never know.
