By Scott Goldfine

A widower (Antonia) returns to a small Dutch town following the end of World War II in this amusing, irreverent and poignant film, the Netherlands’ official entry for Oscar consideration. Antonia serves as a strong and independent matriarch for three generations of women while fostering and environment of freedom that attracts those shunned by others.

The proceedings unfold in frank and grand style.
