  1. Wee Hunk's rating of the film The Northerners

    The headline reads "U.N. to the Dutch: This blackface thing is a problem." A bit hard to ignore since there is a young boy riding in blackface in the first scene. Things are further complicated by holding a young African man in a cage in a loincloth. It doesn't get better. Like most racist traditions, the Dutch who support it claim it is part of their heritage. This is still a problem in 2017.

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film The Northerners

    Film extrêmement personnel, entre onirisme et naïveté, par un cinéaste à suivre... www.cinefiches.com

  3. Bonnet Michel's rating of the film The Northerners

  4. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film The Northerners

    Un filme que roza con la comedia negra. En un suburbio holandés un vecindario excéntrico va develando personajes que rozan con la locura por culpa de sus obsesiones o represiones, desde sexuales a mesiánicas. A llamar la atención son los prototipos de estos protagonistas. Es variopinto, rozando con lo ridículo y lo caricaturesco. Lo otro es su diseño artístico. Una puesta en escena extravagante.
