Description
Based on the best-selling novel by Ferdinand Bordewijk, this dark drama from the Netherlands won the 1998 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. When a powerful bailiff (Jan Decleir) dies violently, a young man in evening clothes—later revealed to be the man's illegitimate son—appears to be the culprit. In Dutch with English subtitles.

"Using somber hues, blunt acting and a stark visual style offset by sweeping camera work, [the film] adapts a popular 1938 Dutch novel about a young man's lifelong struggle with a father whose cruel authority borders on the Kafkaesque.... All roads lead to Dreverhaven, or so it seems. He exerts an almost otherworldly power over his son's life, and the mutual bitterness that this engenders is the film's driving force. It is given a quiet ferocity by Decleir's formidable performance."—NYTimes
