Winter in Wartime Reviews

    Wonderfully made Dutch film carried by a 14 year old actor, who faces decisions on right and wrong, and betrayal. We thought it was excellent.

    Another interesting WWII story. The filmmaking got a little in its own way, with the score trying way too hard. It was really overbearing and distracting at times.

    An oversimple tragedy of a young man told in a manner that's affecting only because its pacing and techniques are too familiar. For one that finds it too conventional, the suspense melts away, and the affection is lost. One is then left with slushy water to wallow in in this not-quite-solid sighful winter of a film.

    Suspenseful story of a young boy desperate to play his part in fighting the Nazis during the 2nd world war. Well worth seeing.

    10/13/14 StarzHD A compelling story of family, trust, courage, occupation and deceit. This was a really good story, if at times very sad and uncomfortable. You get a good sense of the difficulty of being occupied but a human sense that not all occupiers are heartless barbarians. You certainly root for a positive outcome for the Dutch teenager and his RAF friend while feeling the sadness he has to endure at such a young life. Excellent film.

    An excellent wartime coming of age drama set in Nazi occupied Holland late in World War II. The story is powerful and well told. The acting is excellent. The settings and cinematography are outstanding. A very well directed and emotionally powerful movie.
