A very good movie

1 year, 1 month ago at Dec 30 7:54
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)

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 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. "
