At 1:30:57 there is an Oktava microphone dated 1957, Russian made, used to interview Riphagen at the end of WWII. This obviously does not match the timing of the interview. See more »

A tense drama in tense times.
23 September 2016 | by marcnicolai-77775See all my reviews

Definitely better than I had expected going in. A tense period piece with the war as a distant background and the cat and mouse game of the Wehrmacht security forces and their collaborators against Dutch resistance fighters in the foreground.

The way Riphagen, a criminal who makes the best of the situation, plays his victims and his enemies is like watching a snake curling its way through a buffalo stampede of self-righteous characters and thoroughly enjoyable.

Especially interesting is the fast pace that allows for a second half that shows how the approaching end of the war unleashed a whirlwind of internally divided Dutch nationalism that started lashing out against anyone deemed a collaborator and was already preparing for the fight against the communists.
