De storm

Two days ago,we saw this impressive Dutch movie from 2009 on television. Today it is 60 years ago that the Netherlands suffered the worst natural disaster in living memory. A combination of storm and high tide flooded large parts of the south west, killing 1800, and leaving 100000 people homeless. The movie deals with the human tragedy of a single mother who survived, and her search for her lost baby, in beautifully reconstructed scenes. The poster is quite worthwhile as well. More on this movie in the IMDB article linked to below.
