A WWII movie about a Jewish girl who's hooked on Nazi cock? Right, there are some bits and pieces of a story on the Dutch Resistance and about collaborators here as well. Ms van Houten leaves a stimulating impression both with her acting and with her T & A, but after an interesting enough beginning this technically solid movie slowly degenerates into a mess. Also, how exactly is the local SD boss a good guy? He's just trying to cover his ass now that the end of the war is near. Hello Hans Landa!
Has someone made a van Hooters joke yet? Not that kind of film? Oh, sorry. Uh... Good movie?
Aside from some excessive boobs, this doesn't feel like a Verhoeven film. It just feels long and with little payoff
verhoeven's films have at their core this idea that the stories we tell ourselves about our identities are convenient and self-serving, and i'm certain he'd hold up hollywood's holocaust dramas as perfect examples. the surface prestige and slickness is not in earnest; much like STARSHIP TROOPERS, he mimics and inhabits the enemy so he can unlock the back door and let in some uncomfortable truths. it could be more honed though, and SEVEN BEAUTIES did it better right down to the sex and feces.
Very well-done thriller about a Jewish singer in Nazi-occupied Holland who's just rescued by the Dutch Resistance at first, then becomes an active participant. This would make a really good double feature with _Army of Shadows_
I'm a sucker for Verhoeven, but hey, the some older folk who watched the film liked it too. That must mean something.
Typical dutch movie, set in WW2 with some nude titty scenes thrown in. The movie is enjoyable, but has some annoying plot-holes and bad acting (why Hoffman?, this guy is terrible...). I hate it when story-jumps have to be explained by the actor telling what happened. My gf loved this movie, don't know if this is a good sign though. Anyway, not one of Verhoeven's best movies, helaas.....
Triumphant return to form from the old master of violence and nekkidness. Carice van Houten is hawt!
Very Good WW2 Movie by Verhoeven with some twists in the Plot to middle of the Movie. Overall a strong european movie.
Criticker wanted me to see this for quite some time, but I tried resisting it as I'm not really fond of war dramas. Turned out to be pretty, pretty good =) Also, some similarities to Tarantino's Basterds are spotted. Quote of the day: "Does it never end?"
What was with the scat porn?
(LUST, CAUTION, NAZIS)
