    I like this movie quite a bit, but I just felt that there was something missing that would've made it great. I'm not sure exactly what it was, but there was something that completely detached me from the experience. I shouldn't even say that because that must imply I was attached to any of the characters, when I wasn't and that's probably what was missing from the movie. I never had any connection to the characters, so I didn't really care about them in the long run. The movie is well put together and well acted, but I just felt nothing towards the characters. The pacing is also slightly erratic and the last act of the movie feels like a series of unfortunate events that makes this part of the movie come across as hokey. It's a good movie but one that I find is incredibly flawed.

    A family is torn apart by loyalties, fear, secrecy and distrust while their freezing little world disintegrates around them. Excellent acting, cinematography for a rare coming-of-age piece. Powerful ending. Really good film!

    A look at a young lad during ocupation by the nazis in holland during ww2 and his conflicts when he gets involved with a stranded english pilot, adding to this the involvment of family members in the dutch resistence and them not wanting him to get involved. a well told story, which the story is always interesting, and a well told story of a young mans turmoil during world war 2
