Dutch film ‘De Slag om de Schelde’ to go nationwide in December

The Dutch film about the Battle of the Scheldt will finally get a Christmas cinema launch, the battle of Scheldt is thought-of to be a rotary point in the history of World War II.

The creators have announced the launch date. The history-based Film: hopes De Slag om de Schelde will be screened at least on 250 cinemas across the nation in the winter holidays, the AD reported.  De Slag om de Schelde cost €14.5m to produce and is listed in the most budgeted Dutch films ever. During the battle, allied forces opened up the carriage route to Antwerp so the port could be utilized to supply food and weaponry to allied militias in north-west Europe.

The battle took 10,000 lives but served vital for the liberation of Belgium and the Netherlands. Set in late 1944 and dubbed in Dutch and English, the film trails the lives of three people involved in the battle: a teenage pro-Nazi Dutchman, a lost English sailplane pilot and a clerk who serves the mayor of Vlissingen and part of the resistance.

“Hollywood rescheduled nearly all its blockbusters to next year,” producer Alain de Levita said to AD. “It is a calamity for cinemas, who are in search of big hits during this period. We initially decided to launch it with the new James Bond, but now we have evaded it.”
