Summary: Having stumbled upon this film, I wasn't quite sure what it would be like. I have to say it moved me from start to finish. A lovely story, with great acting by all. Had me in tears at a couple of points and nice little twist at the end. I was really attached to the lead character ' Michiel' from start to finish. Great actor.
Summary: This is maybe one of the best films I have seen in 2013. It is engaging from start 'til finish and it manages to reinvent itself throughout to maximise its dramatic effect. Utterly brilliant. Manages to deal well with the messy business of collaboration vs rebellion in 1945 Holland, all through the format of a bildungsroman. Fantastic !!! More more more !!!
Summary: The European film industry keeps making top end films. This drama set in the final winter of WW11 set in Holland and focuses on a boy and his growing up in war time. As he helps an airman to escape the Nazi occupiers.
Excerpt: I have no information on other releases but this one has no English subtitles for anything spoken in English. As the Dutch boy has a very heavy accent and the British pilot mumbles I was unable to understand half of what they said! How stupid as this otherwise is a good transfer.
