      Audience Member i want to see this movie again...where can i find it. it is outstanding!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member As a previous resident of the Netherlands I am biased because this movie brings back memories of my time there. That said, the themes are both ageless and current. A wonderful film that deals with the sex trade, economic hardship of the small farmer, and romance in the most measured and respectful way. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Finally (long overdue) saw this film and loved it - it is so good and so touching in all its simplicity. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Read all reviews
