sure, it is not the right word. but it is a word who could suggest the force of image, the tensione of the fight scenes, the great choreography and the patriotic emoțion the slices of romanticism and the feminist message. the basic virtue - to discover a different Holland, behind the dry lesson about the Spanish domination or about the Low Contries miracle. because it seems be a folk fairy tale. a women army and the leader of impresive resistance. the moral victory and the hidden truth . and an universal message. about duty more than about courage. a film with many sins. and with a small virtue - to remember basic, fundamental values.
