Sometimes mistaken for the first Dutch musical, but there have been musicals on film since the early days of sound film. The second movie with sound was a musical for instance (De Jantjes, 1934). It was the first musical graduation film of the Amsterdam Film School though. See more »
Although the film is made by a young student from the Dutch Film Academy, the film looks very professional.It is a little musical; even the dialogues are sung. First you think it is a boring tear-jerker, but soon you realize that the film is made with a lot of nice humor, fine songs and a good story. There are several good scenes in the picture. The film starts very threatening, especially for a little chicken to be flattened under a pair of boots. Ellen ten Damme seems to play an innocent girl, that is surprised by the cruelty of life, but she also has a naughty defiant look in her beautiful eyes and her fat wink after the credits you wont easily forget.
