Papa’s Song is a drama of domestic tension and cross-cultural misunderstanding. Nico Verema (Rene van Asten), a decorous, somewhat gloomy Dutch magistrate, lives happily with his wife, Shirley (Roman Vrede), who is from Curacao. Shirley’s two young nephews, in the Netherlands to escape a bad situation at home, complete the household. Its atmosphere of calm bourgeois propriety is soon upended by the arrival of the boys’ mother, Magda (Lisette Merenciana) who wants to take her sons back. “Papa’s Song” touches on a number of fascinating and difficult themes, including the state of race relations in the contemporary Netherlands. A. O. Scott, NY Times.
