Movie Info

For a Lost Soldier was originally released in the Netherlands as Voor een veloran soldaat. Using a flashback framework, the film deals with a gay "coming of age". Forty years after the fact, choreographer Jeroen Krabbe recalls a wartime romance. During the Allied liberation of Holland, the young Krabbe (played as a youth by Marten Smit) entered into a tender relationship with a Canadian soldier (Andrew Kelley). Back to the present, Krabbe attempts to incorporate his experiences in his latest ballet work, a celebration of the Liberation. This delicately handled tale was written by its director, Roeland Kerbosh.

Audience Reviews for For a Lost Soldier

It's very slow until Jeroen meets Walt. I was pretty bored at first, but once they meet it turns into a good movie. What I like most about it is the fact that it's not about anything, ie it's not a 'gay' movie and it's not a 'pedophile' movie. It's just two characters who (think?) they're in love and their short time together. What I also like is that it was very natural. The chemistry wasn't forced and it wasn't awkward at all, which is always good.
