This review is from: Black Book  [DVD] (DVD)
My wifes comments about this movie might strike a chord with some of you reading this review.
"Oh no, not a foreign language war film" as the opening scene reveals subtitles.
"Brilliant - have a look through the special features " she comments as the credits roll at the end.
There seems to be a common misconception that a foreign film with subtitles will fail to be entertaining.
'Black Book' is an excellent story and shows that in war time the lines drawn between friend and foe can become blurred. Its impossible to hate people you should hate if you experience the humanity within and its equally impossible to love those close to you when they betray your trust.
Well acted and directed and a refreshing viewpoint.
