De Aanslag or a jigsaw.
What is really fascinating in this Dutch movie is the way the past takes shape again,little by little,on a very long period:the hero is a middle-age man when he finally learns the final truth .What is less convincing in the implausibility of these situations and the main flaw of the work :each time a new character appears,outside of course of the two wives,his only purpose is to provide the hero with new facts about the tragedy he went through when he was 12.

And however the story is absorbing:the first scenes ,during the fateful night are harrowing,first in the parents ‘house or in the icy landscape that surrounds it or in the dungeon where the young boy meets the female Resistance fighter.

Then begins the child’s adult life and while there are very strong scenes ,there are also some flaws: too much voice-over (“He spends his Easter holiday in London” “He gets married” are completely pointless:the picture is enough),and it’s really difficult to follow the hero’s psychological change (why for instance does he get divorce?) But its questionings (who are the heroes ? who are the traitors?) sometimes recalls Jorge Luis Borges.One of the best scenes shows Anton talking with the collaborator’s son:who is the victim NOW? did this young man and his mother deserve what happened to them?”They ‘re living” replies Anton.

And is Anton’s attitude -stay away from the events that shakes the world- so worthwhile?That’s why the last scene is very revealing:finally he understood that responsibility is everywhere and should be shared by everyone.

In spite of its flaws,it’s certainly one of the most interesting European movies of the eighties.

The tragedy of war
‘De Aanslag’ is an epic drama taking place in the final days of German occupation of the Netherlands in 1945.

A Nazi collaborator, Ploeg, was shot dead in Haarlem, and the corpse dragged to the front of a neighbouring house. When the Nazis arrived they assumed that the people in that house were responsible, arrested the occupants and set the house alight. Several other people were also rounded up and all executed. The exception is Anton, the 12 year old son of the family who lived in the house, who was taken to the military HQ and later sent to his uncle in Amsterdam.

These traumatic events had a serious psychological impact on Anton, particularly in his later life. Like a slow puzzle, the pieces began fitting together. As an adult Anton discovered who killed the collaborator, and who dragged the body to the front of their house, events that had such devastating effects.

It is an excellent film, but in my view a little too long. It loses momentum halfway through, but fortunately picks up again towards the end. Acting, cinematography and music score are top-notch. It brings a powerful anti-war message, and also explores the power of public mass protest to change the social order. I still score it a very good 8/10.
