Unhappily, I don't read Dutch
7 July 2007 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

There are limits on how intelligent a review I can write about this movie, since the copy I saw today at New York's Museum of Modern Art was from the Dutch Film Archives and the titles were, naturally, in Dutch, and the Museum seems to think that either everyone in old New Amsterdam reads Dutch or they didn't care. So some plot points remain obscure, like the characters' tattoos.

Nonetheless, I need to award this movie a decent rating because its main sequence is a chase sequence, over roofs, down elevators, on boats, in cabs and under railroads, done with some imagination, although doubtless a tad slow for modern audiences who expect people to sky dive out of supersonic jets buck naked. That's a good sequence and, doubtless, if I read Dutch the movie would have been outright enjoyable.
