Dur­ing Ger­many’s oc­cu­pa­tion of Hol­land, a young Jewish woman joins the re­sis­tance and agrees to se­duce a Nazi leader. An epic war drama that chan­nels the sor­row­ful so­cial la­ment of Schindler’s List and the raw adrenalin of Saving Pri­vate Ryan. And yet, the end re­sult is some­thing else en­tirely, thanks to the In­grid Bergman-like grace and grav­ity of lead­ing lady Carice van Houten. A pow­er­ful ef­fort from no­to­ri­ous di­rec­tor Paul Ver­ho­even (Ba­sic In­stinct).
