This was a very different film for the average war-film enthusiast. It shows quite another take on the liberal society which is Holland and is very convincing in its depiction of the way individuals can slip so easily in the required way of thinking, i.e anti-semitic, anti-gay. The acting is superbly under played and is a refreshing change from the gung-ho or sentimental which prevails films of violence today. The portrayal of the British in this Dutch language film was interesting and very realistic. Needless to say the direction and filmscript were superb.
