Synopsis [B]eautifully crafted....While the film has the rousing action of the best Hollywood war films, it ends on a note of melancholy that testifies to the maturity of these gifted filmmakers.3 stars out of 5 -- Martin Koolhoven's film makes telling use of his snow-bound landscapes to suggest the frozen limbo-time the Dutch found themselves in...3 stars out of 5 -- Koolhoven is mostly good with actors, the period is strongly evoked and there are strong moments...The film is relatively well appointed, especially in its recreation of historical period and detail...Straightforward and solid....Director Martin Koolhoven elicits strong performances in the handsomely photographed feature...3 stars out of 5 -- Koolhoven manages the difficult balance of entertaining as well as offering a high emotional impact, with considerable agility.3 stars out of 4 -- It's a gripping, edge-of-your-seat thriller....The story, directed by Martin Koolhoven, is impeccably paced and lean, with a visually gorgeous, icy blue pallor that underscores the cold, hard choices that its characters must make.As helmed by Martin Koolhoven (HET ZUIDEN), the Dutch-language saga OORLOGSWINTER stars Martijn Lakemeier as Michiel van Beusekom, a young man who becomes involved in the Dutch resistance during the final winter of World War II. Though this represents a heroic move on the boy's part, the experience ultimately leads to complete disillusionment, as it brings Michiel face to face with the realization that during times of war, good and evil are actually intertwined.
