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.
