This movie revolves around 3 women and 1 man who meet on a flight in tthe early 50's from the Netherlands to New Zealand. They all are emigrating spurred by horrific floods and terriblre economic hardship in the Netherlands. The sagas of these 4 become intertwined in fascinating and unusual ways. Always compelling,at times poignant, at times agonizing,at times uplifting, the movie artfully follows the different ,but conjoined stories of the fully photogenic actors. Moviegoers , I think, will uniformly find the adventure intriguing ,captivating and most satisfying.

This is a historically based, beautiful love story. The characters are strongly intertwined and move from present day to past throughout the movie. The acting was superb, the scenes were strong. Worth the price of a NYC movie ticket. Super scenery. Well, done. Not a chick flick. Wonderful. Please do go.

The scenery was beautiful, but this was one of those stories where everything that could go wrong does. Highly depressing.
