Synopsis

Set in occupied Holland during World War Two, Black Book follows a Jewish woman who is recruited into the resistance and becomes a spy after a tragedy befalls her at the hands of the Nazis. Once there, she becomes entangled in a deadly, melodramatic web of double-dealing and betrayal. The role played by women in the war effort is often ignored, so the depiction of a brave and resourceful heroine is particularly refreshing. The film also successfully avoids many of the stereotypes we've come to expect, with the heroes and villains of this tale not as clear cut as you might expect.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
