Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 2812 ratings.
I saw this movie originally on AMC back when they were THE go-to channel for quality uncolorized and commercial-free movies. I expected a typical propaganda-type early war movie, replete with stereotypes - but I was pleasantly surprised by its quality in story line, acting and most noticeably (for me) its cinematography. I can't say enough about this movie, and about how you really ought to have a copy - you'll want to watch it more than once!
You're in for a rare treat when you watch this film. It's a definite step above other similar type films. Look for a skinny Peter Ustinov as the parish priest in what might have been his first film (or one of his first). Yes, it was made during the early days of WWII and the good guys are good guys and the Dutch underground is filled with heroic men and attractive women and the Germans are all dumb Nazis, easily hoodwinked or outwitted, but it's well worth watching thanks to a good story, good dialogue, and some exciting moments. Being nomintaed for 2 Oscras has got to mean something as well.
