Excellent movie “teenager in war’ for audience aged 10-110
Oorlogswinter is a very, very special movie around the themes war, love, trust, friendship from the point of view of a 14-year old Dutch teenager in the last winter of World War 2.
* beautiful cold winter-setting with lots of snow and original landscapes; – fantastic music from Pino Donaggio; – lots of close shots on excellent actors; – shows both the adventure and the drama of a war.
The 14-year old actor playing the main role is an amazing natural talent in a very realistic story which could happen to every teener in a war-situation.
This is a movie everyone must see between 10 and 110.
Watch out for Oorlogswinter!
An Oscar contender
I recently saw this at the 2010 Palm Springs International Film Festival where the film’s director Martin Koolhoven was on hand at my screening for an audience Q&A following the film. Based on the Dutch novel by Jan Terlouw the story takes place in January of 1945 in Nazi-occupied Holland. In the novel the central character Michiel (Martijn Lakemeir) is 16, here he is 14, and is looking for a chance to help the underground resistance movement. His favorite uncle, Ben (yorick van Wageningen) is a member of the resistance and has come to live with Michiel’s family. Michiel’s father (Raymond Thiry) is the mayor of the German occupied village and his teenaged sister Erica (Melody Klauer) works as a nurse. A neighbor of Michiel asks him to deliver an envelope on behalf of the resistance and soon he is in over his his head in espionage and the war and an effort to help Jack (Jamie Campbell Bower), a downed and injured American pilot hiding out in the forest outside of the village. With noted veteran German actor Dan van Husen as the commander of the village’s occupying army. Excellent cinematography from Guido van Gennep and a great looking film thanks to art director Darius Bastys and production designer Floris Vos this is a good film and has made the eight film short list to the 82nd Academy Awards as the Netherlands official submission for Best foreign Language Film. Some of the acting seems a little stiff and the film could use more tension but I would recommend it and give it an 8.5 out of 10. I’m sure this will be playing in American art house theaters in 2010.
