Watch Free Online Bride Flight Movie Trailer Reviews Cast And Crew

Dutch full-length Movie Bride Flight 2011

A romantic drama that charts the lives of three women from different backgrounds, forever changed when they emigrate to New Zealand as war brides.

Movie Plot Summary:
Three young women - Ada, Esther, and Marjorie - emigrate from post-WWII Holland for what they hope will be a better life in New Zealand with their fiancés who are already settled in Christchurch. On the plane trip - the "Bride Flight" - the three become fast friends and meet a dashing young man, Frank, who who will play a large role in each of their lives. Upon their arrival, they part ways to start their new lives yet their paths continue to cross with chance meetings resulting in adultery, betrayal and near tragedy on to a reunion fifty years later.

Movie Review:
The first twenty minutes I wondered which way this film was going, in more than one sense. The acting was not great, the dialogues where not convincing, the scenes in the plane where clumsy and Dutch international movie star Rutger Hauer's character died not long after the beginning. Honestly, with a few exceptions I am not very impressed by the Dutch cinema, was this another Dutch movie? Then the story started to roll and got me more in its grip. The acting was getting better, sometimes real good. What I think is a pity, is that the storyline is filled with flash forwards that do not add much to the story, which is all about the life of Dutch immigrants in New Zealand in 1953 and farther. The film could have been much better if the story was told chronologically and ended somewhere in the 70's or 80's. Now there are two actors for each character, and for me, also knowing the old respectable actors from the old days, this was sometimes quite disturbing. I found it hard to intermingle a character, I saw Willeke van Ammelrooy, not the character that grew old and looked little alike with the younger woman she once had been in the film. I had strongly the impression that the known actors where mostly used to put known names on the billboards. Their parts are relatively small and of little importance for the basic line of the story.
