MONDAY BLACK BOOK
10.35PM, SBS 2 ★★★★
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).
