12 April 2017 | Kirpianuscus
a historical drama. not better or worst by many others. its virtue - to remember a page from the Modern history of Netherlands. its sin - the too obvious feminist manifesto message. and the desire to explore a too large field of problems, proposing , not always, the best solutions. the seductive parts are the same from the other historical dramas giving stories from territories overseas. the mixture of exoticism and clash between cultures and Manichean portraits. the last thing is the source of "like too many others" as conclusion about this series. because, in fact, only bad thing in this case is the difference between a generous subject and the easy story , pink and real too sentimental, ignoring the rules proposed in the first part for the end "ad usum Delphini". but it is a nice film. and this could be the only significant thing about it.
