Trivia

In the Mirror Maze (at around 35 mins) and after, viewers should realize that although Tom and Thomas are wearing identical white corduroy jackets with hooded orange zippered liners, Thomas' liner is zipped up so his front is orange while Tom's liner is unzipped, so his front is black. A more subtle difference is that Thomas' hair is parted on his left while Tom's hair is parted in the middle. Viewers may confuse them before the Mirror Maze when, after Thomas and his father enter the Space Museum with tickets, Tom sneaks in (at around 34 mins) by calling out "Mom, wait for me", pretending she is ahead of him -- staff thinking he were Thomas would aid his ruse.

Very good underestimated movie
22 December 2002 | by (Alkmaar, the Netherlands) – See all my reviews

The movie "Tom and Thomas" recently appeared in the Netherlands on DVD and Video.

Due to circumstances I was not able to view this movie in the theatre. I wish I had, because Tom and Thomas is a very good crafted and impressive movie.

Aaron Johnson as Tom/Thomas was a real good choice by Esmé Lammers for this role. It is one of the most impressive performences in acting I have seen in years. It would be ashame if we never heard from Aaron again. I now understand that he frequently performs at the London theaters in plays.

I hope his acting in the new Jackie Chan movie "Shanghai Knights", to be released in February 2003, will be as impressive, or even more impressive than what I saw in "Tom and Thomas".

Sean Bean also performed well, but I think there was not enough room in the movie for him to use all his talent, which is in fact a pity.

It is clear that the film was made by Esmé Lammers together with her husband Dick Maas (a famous movie producer in the Netherlands).

I personally thought before viewing this movie that it would be a very lovely childrens story, but the are in fact a few very exiting moments. I would not recomment to let children up to 8 view this by themselves.

It is clear that a high standard of craftmanship has been used.

Critics in the Netherlands were not long as enthusiastic about this film as me, but I think this movie deserves much more credit than it has gotten up to now.
