Amidst all the crappy movies available these days, I must say that this movie was most excellent in every way. Well, almost.

Netherlands, WW2.
Rachel Stein is a young Jewish singer, hiding from the Nazis. She gets a warning that her hiding place is located by Germans and must evacuate. Unfortunately the cross-over does not go well since all people aboard are killed, except Ra... read more

Gerben Kuipers: "How do you know all this?"
Ellis de Vries: "Because I was set up myself! Because I've seen my entire family be slaughtered!"

Back then, before this movie was released, there was a huge buzz in the Netherlands. Indeed, not only Paul Verhoeven was finally releasing a new director effort after 6 long years but he was also back in his homeland more than 20 years after ‘De vierde man’, his last Dutch feature. Anyway, for Verhoeven, it was a successful comeback and, in the Netherlands, it was indeed a huge success but I n... read more

"24.1. Tuntuu oudolta katsoa toisesta maailmansodasta kertovaa elokuvaa, joka on niin puhtaasti viihteellisistä seikkailuelementeistä rakennettu. Esimerkkejä on toki muitakin, mutta esim. Inglourious Basterds on Tarantinolle ominaisesti niin irrotettu todellisuudesta, että sitä on vaikea laskea samaan kategoriaan.

"26.11. Neljän Paul Verhoeven -leffan jälkeen mentyäni nukkumaan näin unta, jossa naiselta leikattiin nännit irti. En tiedä, mitä muuta se kertoo Paul Verhoeven -leffoista kuin että niissä näkyi todella paljon nännejä. "
