Black Book - the latest Paul Verhoeven movie
December 10, 2007
Dutch-born director Paul Verhoeven spent many years in Hollywood, making such films as RoboCop, Basic Instinct and Starship Troopers. After returning to the Netherlands, Verhoeven last year came out with a film about Holland during the second world war. Black Book isn’t your typical World War II movie, where the Nazis are always bad and the resistance fighters are only good guys and girls. Verhoeven’s take on the war years is more complex, with shades of grey, the Nazis are sometimes good, the resistance is sometimes bad. KFAI’s Benno Groeneveld explains why it is still relevant to talk about a year-old movie set in a period more than 60 years ago.
