Storyline

Mees has a problem. By accident he took his best friend's pocket knife home with him. Unfortunately he is too late to return it as the next day Tim moves house. All that Mees knows is that Tim has gone to Flevoland. His parents are tied up in their own lives and have no room for little Mees' problems. His mother is a world-famous singer and it seems Mees sees her more on TV than in real life. His father is under a lot of pressure acting as a housekeeper and as secretary for his popular wife. So little Mees must search alone for his friend..... Written by kabouter <kab@kabouter.demon.nl>

The Penknife
10 October 2006 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

I taped this movie in Canada, where it aired on television as 'The Penknife'. Unfortunately, IMDb doesn't list 'The Penknife' as an alternative title. I eventually found it though, by looking up the actors. IMDb's feature to submit alternative titles is locked to average subscribers like me, but this information ought to be updated by someone who can.

The movie itself isn't what you'd call exciting. It's obviously geared more for children. It's cute though, and a decent time-waster for family members of all ages. Olivier Tuinier, who played the main character 'Mees', is an adorable, often wide-eyed, young boy. He's absolutely delightful to watch.

It would be nice to have this on DVD, with the original audio. The version I taped aired with dubbed English. It would be nice to hear the voices of the original actors.
