Public Works-Late 19th C Amsterdam recreated

Jump to last reply

Ever wondered why it is that the Victoria Hotel is build around two 18th century canal houses? In his novel Public Works, novelist Thomas Rosenboom provided an answer to this. The adaptation to film of this novel has been in the cinemas now. Although the film was reviewed to be of modest value, its CGI recreation of Amsterdam in the late nineteenth century was widely praised and is a wonder to behold.

An interesting piece of cinema for those who want to know what Amsterdam looked like right at the start of the 19th century building boom that irrevocably turned it into a modern city.
