Black Book

Rachel is a Jewish woman who met an old kibbutz friend who works as a teacher. In the Netherlands during the war in September 1944, Rachel received many troubles when her hiding place was bombarded by coalition forces. Rachel later joined a group of Jews, all of whom ran through the sea by boat to the south of the Netherlands in search of another refuge. The Germans carried out a massive genocide, killing all of them and only Rachel, who was able to escape, survived. In the end, she was called Elise de Fries because she is part of the Jewish resistance that still suffers from German threats

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.
March 06, 2008

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.
Beyond Hollywood
April 18, 2008
A slick, thrilling, trashy, melodramatic and serialesque soap opera adventure which conceals the complex tale of moral ambiguity beneath.

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

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.

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.

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

September 25, 2010
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.
