Twitter Capsule: Serial miscalculations, starting with copious and banal voiceover in the prologue. Artistically flat. Weird on race.

VOR:   We may just be in a Dutch storytelling idiom I don't get; I spent most of Antonia's Line dying for the exit. But this seems hackneyed and listless, despite attempts at tenderness.
