Went to Vlissingen yesterday to watch "The Forgotten Battle" (De Slag om de Schelde) in the CineCity cinema.
This is one of the most expensive Dutch films ever, made in co-production with Netflix, it might appear on Netflix after about a year.
For the occasion they had parked an original Sherman tank outside the cinema which had about a dozen holes in it from anti-tank weapons. We also made a bike trip around Vlissingen and saw a lot of monuments to remember what happened during the heavy battles in this region in WWII. There was also an original "Biber" mini submarine on display on the boulevard that was used in the shallow waters of the Schelde river.
The movie did not disappoint, although I would like to have seen more scenes playing in the southern part of Zeeland (where my roots are), they could have skipped the part playing on the Eastern front in Russia as far as I'm concerned.
The emphasis of this movie however is not on the battles, although there are some gruesome realistic scenes, but more on the personal experiences of the main characters, an English glider pilot, a Dutch girl and a Dutch boy that fought on the side of the Germans.
A positive point about the movie is that not all Germans are depicted as being cruel Nazi monsters.
