Reviews

'Antonia' was in 1995 de vierde speelfilm van Marleen Gorris, na onder meer De stilte rond Christine M. In de titelrol zien we Willeke van Ammelrooy, en verder Els Dottermans, Jan Decleir en Marina de Graaf. Deze familiekroniek over vier generaties vrouwen speelt zich af op het platteland en begint kort na de Tweede Wereldoorlog. Antonia keert, samen met haar dochter Daniëlle, terug naar haar vroegere dorp waar zij de zorg voor de boerderij op zich neemt. Vijftig jaar later kijkt ze terug op haar leven. Deze epische film toont de cirkelgang van geboren worden, leven en sterven. De film won de Oscar voor Beste niet-Engelstalige film en Gouden Kalveren voor Beste actrice (van Ammelrooy) en Beste regie. De dvd bevat geen extra's.
