Movie Summary

Director:
Unknown
Released:

Rating:
R
Nazi-occupied Holland, 1945. In a snow-covered village, thirteen-year-old MICHIEL (Martijn Lakemeier) is drawn into the Resistance when he aids a wounded British paratrooper. Michiel's boyish sense of defiance and adventure soon turns to danger and desperation, as Michiel is forced to act without knowing whom to trust among the adults and townspeople around him. Wartime's harsh reality encroaches on childhood innocence as Michiel confronts good and evil, courage and duplicity, and his own burden of responsibility.

Metacritic Score

  • 75

    San Francisco Chronicle

    Koolhoven is able to strip away both visually and mentally our idealized cinematic notions of how the resistance fighters lived. It's a lonely existence. It's stark and it's scary....

  • 70

    The New York Times Stephen Holden

    Winter in Wartime turns into a moderately gripping thriller with predictable plot twists and reversals.

  • 60

    Los Angeles Times

    Straightforward and solid but only mildly involving.
