If you haven’t seen this epic movie you are in for a real treat!
The scene is postwar Holland (1953). The war has left a lot of people at “loose ends”. Broken families have come to pass due to the loss of the colony of Indonesia, extraordinary war events, and a great flood.
The four main characters; Ada, Marjorie, and Esther emigrate to New Zealand where their prospective fiancées await them. Frank, a young man forced to relocate to Holland from a Japanese internment camp feels lost in his new home of Holland and decides to make a new life along with the three women.
Their stories intertwine beautifully as they look to discover new lives in the promised land of New Zealand.
If you like Dutch Cinema this one may floor you! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
