Black Book

Description
In the Netherlands during the war in September 1944, Israeli girl Rachel Rosenthal suffered a lot of trouble when her hiding place was shelled by the coalition forces. In search of escape, Rachel joined a group of Jews who all ran across the sea to the southern Netherlands, From another refuge away from the power of war. The Germans carried out a massive extermination of all those who escaped to the Netherlands by boat, where everyone was killed with Rachel and no one survived because she was the only one who could escape. After this happened, Rachel was named as Elise de Fries so she could hide because she was part of the Jewish resistance in the wake of a strong world war.

While gleefully turning all prior war movie stereotypes on their heads, Verhoeven opts for the bizarre theory that ravishing designing women and lots of sex can change the course of world history.

The handsomely mounted, heedlessly pulpy modernist World War II thriller that "The Good German" and "Valkyrie" failed to be - a dizzying rush of daring rescues, sexual intrigue, treachery, betrayal, gunfights, hasty conclusions and harrowing consequences.

Paul Verhoeven's WWII drama stars the lovely Dutch actress Carice van Houten as a Jewish Resistance worker, and costars her breasts. All three deserve awards consideration.

There are a lot of plot twists at the end of the film, maybe too many, but it will keep you guessing.

The happy ending demands that [Verhoeven's] return-journey film -- Black Book -- be a rousing artistic triumph. It isn't. Too many of his lazy Hollywood habits have followed him home.

Seven years after he disappeared with the whimper that was Hollow Man, Paul Verhoeven has returned with what may be his best film.

Insanely entertaining -- and often just plain insane -- World War II melodrama. You may hate yourself in the morning, but you'll have to admit Verhoeven gives you a lot of bang for your buck.

A slick, thrilling, trashy, melodramatic and serialesque soap opera adventure which conceals the complex tale of moral ambiguity beneath.

Verhoeven never loses sight of the larger message -- that in those evil times, ordinary people were forced to do extraordinary, and even awful, things just to live long enough to tell their tale.

Black Book doesn't let the grim facts of the Holocaust get in the way of some ripping pulp.
