The Assault / De Aanslag
Derek de Lint
Monique van de Ven
Based on the 1982 Harry Mulisch book about the experiences of someone caught up in the the horror of WWII and how that affects his life. The film has 5 episodes (1945, 1952, 1956, 1966 and 1981) with the final chapter providing a realisation and understanding of the main character's past. This is one of my favourite films whether it had a Cannon logo slapped on it or not. A very moving film that was well directed and produced. All concerned were at the top of their game hence the multiple award winning status of the film.
