Antonia's Line
Winner of the 1995 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, this heartwarming drama is the remarkable story of a strong-willed woman who builds a new life with her teenage daughter in a quiet Dutch village after World War II. As she challenges the local customs, she begins to win her neighbors' affections. Earthy, sexy and romantic, the film is a joyous, multi-generational celebration of simple pleasures, lust for life and enduring passions.

Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

Winner of the Foreign Language Oscar in 1996, this comedy tells of fifty years in a rural Dutch village, and the kind of warmth and good humor that takes that many years to build.
