Voor een verloren soldaat
AKA: For a Lost Soldier
True story of a 12-year-old boy's war-time sexual awakening inspired by the memories of Dutch ballet star Rudi van Dantzig. In 1944, Jeroen is evacuated from Amsterdam to a farming community. He catches the eye of Walt, a Canadian soldier and a strong friendship develops between the two. For Walt it is a love of circumstance which lasts as long as he remains in the village but for Jeroen this magical expecrience will deeply influence his subsequent life.

The book of the same name gives us the real, complex story, as do films such as Les Amis, Un enfant dans la foule and Guter Junge. However, the director has stated that in this film he aimed to tell a simpler, happier love story, and he succeeds admirably. And this tale has its own realism: the director has also said that when the film was first released he received quite a few letters from men and women telling him that as children they'd had experiences rather like Jeroen's. Maarten Smit is beautiful and turns in a fine performance.My Movie Rating: 9 / 10
A definite must see! A boy is uprooted from his home in Amsterdam and sent to a farming town to live until the end of the war. It's an engaging film, it not only explores the boy's sexual awakenings, Jeroen is far from home too, as well as Walt, so they immediately connect and become friends.
For A Lost Soldier is a deeply heartfelt romance between a man and his young friend!
I highly recommend this gem of a movie!My Movie Rating: 9 / 10
