In a Dutch village during the German occupation, five unlikely heroes—a teacher, a florist, a restaurant owner, an engineer, and a piano-tuner—become involved in the Resistance, undertaking in their unheroic way dangerous espionage activities under the noses of the Germans.

Our take

Playing a prim teacher with a double life, Sylvia Kristel thrills as a femme fatale in Wim Verstappen’s gripping WWII drama. One of the best films about the Dutch resistance against Nazi occupation, Pastorale 1943 shows the dangers as well as the dark ironies that enfold espionage activities.
