I loved this story and would've liked my old Dutch folks to watch it but a very explicit sex scene at 90-100 minutes will thwart me from sharing.

Interesting story, which is well acted and honestly portrayed. I was concerned about the language issues and sub-titles when deciding to watch. However, it was no problem, and much of the dialogue was in English rather than purely Dutch. Worthwhile watch.

Absolutely fantastic; one of those rare films that remains in your head long afterward.

This is a well crafted movie--actors, script, direction, photography. It handles the lives of the three principle women with a great sense of honesty. Reading the subtitles is important but reading the expressions on the faces of the women is 100 times more revealing.

Very good, kept me interested. Although this was supposed to be in WorldWar2, I can see that this could happen anytime in life and probably has many times.

The scenery was beautiful, the religious aspects were interesting. The focus is on the Dutch immigrants' relationships with each other with little exploration of their interaction as immigrants with the people and culture of New Zealand.
