    From internationally acclaimed director Paul Verhoeven (Soldier of Orange, Elle), Black Book (Zwartboek) is an epic and moving wartime tale, in which the distinctions between good and evil become blurred by human nature. Starring Carice van Houten (Valkyrie, Game of Thrones) and Sebastian Koch (The Lives of Others, Bridge of Spies), the film chronicles one woman’s fight for survival and revenge as the Second World War enters its final, bloody months.

    September 1944. Rachel Stein (van Houten), a Dutch-Jewish woman in the Nazi-occupied Netherlands, joins fellow refugees in their attempt to reach Allied territory by boat after her safehouse is destroyed by a bomb. The voyage ends in disaster when the escape is discovered by a Nazi patrol, with Rachel the sole survivor as her fellow refugees, including her own family, are ruthlessly killed. Set on revenge, Rachel joins the Resistance, adopting the identity of Ellis de Vries to mask her heritage, and infiltrating the German Security Service by seducing senior officer Müntze (Koch). As the war enters its final stages and the fight for survival intensifies, Rachel becomes entangled in a deadly web of deceit and betrayal.

    Anyone seen this one?. Watched the trailer and it looks pretty good. Not really followed Verhoevens work.

    Yes, it's a good film, but more Soldier of Orange than the Fourth Man, so not much to cause public outrage. My parents lent me their DVD and their tastes are pretty mainstream.
    I'm bitter, I'm twisted, James Joyce is fucking my sister.

    Fantastic film, ranks right up there with Verhoeven's finest. Pure bravura.

    I wouldn't be so sure about that in this day and age. I mean, not all the Nazi's are presented as 100% evil and not all the resistance fighters are shown in the best light either. Way too many shades of gray for the easily triggered. And that giant bucket...
