Black Book

In the Netherlands during the war in September 1944, Israeli girl Rachel Rosenthal suffered a lot of trouble when her hiding place was shelled by the coalition forces. In search of escape, Rachel joined a group of Jews who all ran across the sea to the southern Netherlands, From another refuge away from the power of war. The Germans carried out a massive extermination of all those who escaped to the Netherlands by boat, where everyone was killed with Rachel and no one survived because she was the only one who could escape. After this happened, Rachel was named as Elise de Fries so she could hide because she was part of the Jewish resistance in the wake of a strong world war.

CRITICS OF "Black Book"

March 06, 2008

While gleefully turning all prior war movie stereotypes on their heads, Verhoeven opts for the bizarre theory that ravishing designing women and lots of sex can change the course of world history.
Orlando Sentinel

May 04, 2007

Verhoeven never loses sight of the larger message -- that in those evil times, ordinary people were forced to do extraordinary, and even awful, things just to live long enough to tell their tale.
Laramie Movie Scope

January 15, 2008

There are a lot of plot twists at the end of the film, maybe too many, but it will keep you guessing.
Philadelphia Inquirer

April 27, 2007

Black Book doesn't let the grim facts of the Holocaust get in the way of some ripping pulp.
Beyond Hollywood

April 18, 2008

A slick, thrilling, trashy, melodramatic and serialesque soap opera adventure which conceals the complex tale of moral ambiguity beneath.
Stop Smiling

April 07, 2015

Seven years after he disappeared with the whimper that was Hollow Man, Paul Verhoeven has returned with what may be his best film.
USA Today

September 01, 2007

A hard-core war film with raw violence, intense action, graphic sexuality and a twisting plot that offers a series of surprises.
Globe and Mail

April 27, 2007

The happy ending demands that [Verhoeven's] return-journey film -- Black Book -- be a rousing artistic triumph. It isn't. Too many of his lazy Hollywood habits have followed him home.

August 27, 2009

It's the last thing a Verhoeven film should be: tasteful

April 30, 2007

Paul Verhoeven's WWII drama stars the lovely Dutch actress Carice van Houten as a Jewish Resistance worker, and costars her breasts. All three deserve awards consideration.

September 25, 2010

The handsomely mounted, heedlessly pulpy modernist World War II thriller that "The Good German" and "Valkyrie" failed to be - a dizzying rush of daring rescues, sexual intrigue, treachery, betrayal, gunfights, hasty conclusions and harrowing consequences.
Atlanta Journal-Constitution

April 27, 2007

Insanely entertaining -- and often just plain insane -- World War II melodrama. You may hate yourself in the morning, but you'll have to admit Verhoeven gives you a lot of bang for your buck.
