The basis of the Academy AwardDwinning film--essentially the story of a young man growing up in a Rotterdam slum and making good by pluck and intelligence, but all of his success comes out of the desire to spite his violent, grasping, and ruthless father. Roger Ebert called the tale dark, bitter, and fascinating.
