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

Description: 1938. A small group of Dutch students stop their tennis game momentarily to hear of England's entry into World War II. Erik and his friends don't show much concern at first. But when Queen Wilhelmina flees Holland for London and the Germans move in, it becomes necessary to choose sides. Soldier of Orange, directed by Paul Verhoeven (Turkish Delights) is based on the true life adventures of Erik Hazelhoff who received numerous decorations including Holland's highest honor — the Militaire Willems-orde. It is interesting to see how Erik's friends take different courses: a Jew inevitably dies once the German's arrive; another a ... (more)

" Notes: 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 Chri"

"5.2, DVD Gestapon vihollisessa Rutger Hauer ja kumppanit seikkailevat toisen maailmansodan keskellä. Tapahtumapaikat varioivat mukavasti ja hienoa vakoojatyyppistä meininkiä on mukana. Toisaalta kahden ja puolen tunnin kesto on eduksi tarinalle, kun taas toisaalta välillä meinaa kyllästyä koko touhuun. Tunnelmanluonnissa tämä on kuitenkin suht onnistunut, sillä humoristiset ja vakavat kohtaukset luovat mukavaa kontrastia toistensa välille."
