Bride Flight

Rated R 130 minutes 2008

The death of an older gentleman named Frank (Rutger Hauer) brings together three women in Bride Flight, a film about love and sacrifice. The story flashes back to when the four people met decades before, on a flight from Holland to New Zealand. The three women—Ada (Karina Smulders), Esther (Anna Drijver) and Marjorie (Elise Schaap)—are all on their way to be married to other men, but the trio will eventually become forever linked to Frank (played as a younger man by Waldemar Torenstra) in their own ways. Gorgeously shot and stunningly painful, the film starts off weak but ends on a high note. The four leads are especially good, taking material that could have come off as soapy and mundane, and turning it into something beautiful, yet devastating. It is also interesting to see Hauer in his first full-length Dutch film in 28 years, no matter how brief his appearance may be.
