one of the most touching and realistic films I've ever seen
27 October 2001 | by LiesbetSee all my reviews

I've read the book "Vallen" by Anne Provoost, so I was actually expecting the film to be worse than the book, as usual. But this was one of the films that was, I won't say better, but equally as good as the book. Everyone who has read the book will understand how good it must have been then. The actors were very convincing, the story, of course, was excellent and the music of Praga Khan was perfect! The movie is very realistic, maybe a little too realistic. It makes you think, and a movie that makes you think is becoming a rarity these days ;) The story's about racism, nazism , how easily you can influence people, and love. I got goosebumps several times, it's brought into picture so beautiful. The music fits perfect into the movie. (f.e. Falling by Praga Khan feat. Axelle Red and Rhythm by Praga Khan feat. Roos van Acker). Don't be surprised if you have to let a few tears! This film is worth a big 10, go see before it's too late people!
