Exiting nostalgia
29 June 2003 | by (Wellerlooi, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This picture is an excellent copy of the original book. Although the book was written more than 50 years ago the story is still exiting for young boys (and girls) and for the parents that read the book.

The twin brothers Hielke and Sietse Klinkhamer dream of having a boat. When they finally got one it becomes clear that their boat, although being rather ugly, is the fastest of the lake. In the movie the twin get to know Esther, a handsome girl that struggles with the death of her parents. This is a nice touch of the movie, since the book does not involve girls that much.

An excellent Dutch movie with some thrilling parts and a lot of laughs.
