Made for theatrical release by a Dutch TV production firm, this stars Renee Soutendijk in the title role. The Girl is a Dutch wartime resistance leader, who is killed before the film proper gets under way. Through the reminiscences of her best friend, we are given every detail of the Girl's life, loves and dreams (she was a sheltered college student at the outbreak of the War). We also learn what inspired the Girl to become a sang froid assassin of Nazi informers. Director Ben Verbong collaborated on the screenplay with Peter de Vos, author of the factual book (Theun de Vries) upon which the film was based.
