A very good movie

Honestly, it has been a while since I have seen this flick but I will probably re-watch it at some point. In fact, in the Netherlands, it is a huge classic and it is broadcasted on TV at least twice or three times a year. I mean, most of Paul Verhoeven's movies are more or less controversial but this one is usually considered a Dutch national treasure. It was, at the time, the most expensive Dutch... read more

“Honestly, it has been a while since I have seen this flick but I will probably re-watch it at some point. In fact, in the Netherlands, it is a huge classic and it is broadcasted on TV at least twice or three times a year. I mean, most of Paul Verhoeven's movies are more or less controversial but this one is usually considered a Dutch national treasure. It was, at the time, the most expensive Dutch movie ever made and it is indeed a very well made WWII feature with a gripping story, some decent directing and some very good actors. At some point, such actors like Alec Guinness, David Niven, Julie Christie, Henry Fonda or Charlotte Rampling were attached but, probably for some budgetary reasons, they didn't show up after all. Instead, Paul Verhoeven was yet again working with Rutger Hauer (he” read more

" Another one of Paul Verhoeven's masterpieces, a WWII war flick about the Nazi occupied Netherlands. Rutger Hauer and Jeroen Kraebbe are so funny and good together."

A Complete review of Paul Verhoeven's work (14 movies items)

" Original Title : 'Soldaat van Oranje' Cast : Rutger Hauer, Jeroen Krabbé What was it about? This film depicts World War II through the eyes of several Dutch students. It follows them through the beginning of the war, the Nazi occupation and the liberation. My two cents: In the Netherlands, it is a huge classic and it is broadcasted on TV at least twice or three times a year. It is indeed a very well made WWII feature with a gripping story, some decent directing and some very good act"

"14.5. Boyish adventure-war film. I usually don't like war pictures but Verhoeven seems to get it right every time. "
