German occupation during World War 2 changed the Dutch society forever - some people just tried to survive the terror, some joined the resistance and tried to save the Jews from being sent to concentration camps, some joined the Nazi effort to clear the country of any Jewish people. This turned neighbours against each other, people simply stopped to trust each other since the only way to know who your friends is was to put your life in his hands. But there was another group of people, people like Dries Riphagen, who played by their own rules.
After Kenau from 2014 Dutch cinema reached for the story of another of their past heroes, this time Michiel de Ruyter, a Dutch admiral that challenged the English navy in 17th century when his country was in a dire situation. And again they managed to make a war movie that was both visually impressive and at the same time historically accurate (up to a point).
War movies blog - the best war movies in history (or sometimes the worst). We search the war movies from around the world - not only classic American war movies or British war movies, but also those less known or just less interesting films from other countries. Each of them presents the different face of the war - some concetrate on soldiers and most important battles in history, but others present the suffering of the civilians and the trauma of the men involved in the fighting.
