Storyline

The film tells the love story between Hans (Barry Atsma) and Margje (Noortje Herlaar) - sweethearts since school. Hans grows up in a strict religious environment, with a brutal father. He runs away from home at a young age and studies horticulture. After World War II, he starts a nursery in a village in the province of Gelderland. At first, he and Margje enjoy a happy family life and boundless love for one another. They also experience problems, however, with keeping the business going. One day, Hans meets Jozef Mieras (Marcel Hensema), who talks to him about God. After Hans hears God's voice in a vision, he becomes drawn ever deeper into his faith - a faith that will now determine the course of his life, and that of his family. The rifts between the different family members become greater and greater until Hans is completely in the grip of the religious sect. Yet Margje's unconditional love for him survives, in spite of all.

Boring
4 September 2017 | by valaatjeSee all my reviews

You have a bunch of good actors, a storyline which is OK..and then a very boring movie. In many cases it makes no sense at all. Characters are added but their contribution is so minimal you forget they are in in. Atsma and Herlaar are doing great but these were the longest 2 hours of my life.
