After a heady recording period thanks to the pandemic, starting this week is finally here Boundless betrayal (2021), about the period just before the airborne operation Amherst (1945) with the aim of liberating Groningen. From this week, the new home-grown war film will be shown in the cinema.
Drastic decision during WWII
The German-Dutch Ludwig Mengelberg (Peter Nillesen), who is nicknamed ‘Der Fliegende Holländer’ as an officer in the German army, has increasing difficulty with the horrors of war. It really gets too much for him when his wife and daughter die in a bombing; he makes a drastic decision.
He is transferred to the Netherlands and decides to help a Drenthe farmer’s family to hide people in hiding. In other words, high treason. When the SS grows suspicious and the resistance advances, Mengelberg not only risks his own life, but also that of the people he tries to help.
From War Secrets director
The war film is directed by Dennis Bots (War Secrets) and Thomas Nauw. The leading roles are played by Ingrid Bisschop, Allard Geerlings, Roman Khan, Kai Kolder, Andreas Lessig and Peter Nillesen.
