For a Lost Soldier was originally released in the Netherlands as Voor een veloran soldaat. Using a flashback framework, the film deals with a gay "coming of age". Forty years after the fact, choreographer Jeroen Krabbe recalls a wartime romance. During the Allied liberation of Holland, the young Krabbe (played as a youth by Marten Smit) entered into a tender relationship with a Canadian soldier (Andrew Kelley). Back to the present, Krabbe attempts to incorporate his experiences in his latest ballet work, a celebration of the Liberation. This delicately handled tale was written by its director, Roeland Kerbosh. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide

innocence, memory and love lost by filmnutt September 27, 2006 - 10:19 AM PDT

a film only a european could make, this honest and touching film explores the territory of discovering one is gay, growing up and wanting a man to love, no matter the age difference. despite the vast generation separation,tenderness that is shown between the two is remarkably honest and innocent. prurient by nature, this lens is modest in its exposure of male nudity. the story of the american soldier who falls in love with a young boy, who desires the soldier equally, is very forthright in its telling. quite a piece of poetry which ends on a little unstable pedestal of uncertainty--it could go many ways. absolutely lovely and restrained.
