"Black Book" aka "Zwartboek"


 
A Jew in hiding joins the Dutch resistance and infiltrates into the very halls of the Nazi's HQ in the Netherlands.  Can she help bring the Nazis to their knees or will she be another victim of the murderous occupying regime and their traitorous collaborators?  This is really a great thriller with lots of great action, production values, plot twists and some nice tits to boot.  How could the director of Robocop, Total Recall and Basic Instinct screw up a WWII flick?  Well, he did do Starship Troopers and Striptease so I guess we got lucky with this one.  Anyway, swing over here and check out the trailer and see what you think.

Great flick,
Brian

  1. It's one of my favourite movies. Gripping and tense. Some very good acting in it too, not just action and eye-candy.

  2. Trailer to an older film about one of the coolest Dutch resistance fighters and martyrs, Hannie Schaft, who was part of a three-girl hit-squad taking out Nazi scum (in Dutch; unfortunately, I can't seem to find it with English subtitles):

    An interview in Dutch with one of her surviving squad-mates, decades later:

    1. I'll have to track it down and give it a gander.

      Thanks for the heads up,
      Brian

    2. Also check out the book Partisanas by Ingrid Strobl, about female resistance fighters in WWII.
