User Review

Dark and changing times for Oss

Rating: 7/10

In the 1930's a small town called Oss, from the province Noord-Brabant, gets involved in serious crimes. An infamous gang called De Bende van Oss (The Gang of Oss) are the perpetrators, and no one dares to mess with them not even the local police force.

From beginning to end the film stays in a certain tension, and not losing its excitement. The character development is good and the locations are well-chosen. One thing I liked the most was the dark atmosphere that covers almost the entire film. This reminded me of the Great Depression that was leading back in those times.

For me this film has an extra value, because I live in the town Oss. There were certain elements easily recognizable for me, such as locations and some cast members.

I recommend this movie for viewers that are interested in historic films, or one with a good storyline.
