Spy Intrigue - Black Book review by JD

Spoiler Alert
30/04/2013

This is about real spying, not your zip wire stuff but more exciting. Ordinary people doing desperate things to help end the war. How far would you go to protect your family or revenge their memory? It is also about the Dutch resistance and the plot is so thick you can't pour a glass of Advocat without getting lost.

Engrossing - Black Book review by NA

An intriguing and engrossing film with more twists than a Hitchcock thriller with excellent performances of truly believable characters

Gritty realism plus adventure - Black Book review by HM

Spoiler Alert
09/12/2018

Based on a true story? Well it is one heck of a story. War time resistance fighters in Holland continue to harass the Nazis during the last months of the war, but have a double agent amongst them; maybe. A Jewish girl joins the fighters and agrees to infiltrate Nazi HQ. Unexpected romance blossoms along the way amidst a plot containing corruption and betrayal on all sides.

The movie is a thriller and a slice of the underbelly of war. Action scenes are well done and realistic. Great entertainment but a reminder/education as to what some brave people got up to during wartime occupation.
