Kruistoch in Spijkerbroek
7 January 2007 | by (Amsterdam, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This movie was running in top 5 movies since 1 month in Amsterdam, and that interested me. It is made by a renowned Dutch Director – who has taken a big canvas and made a movie – based on a most famous Dutch novel.

The story is about a boy – who due to his failure to pass the ball in a football game is taunted by his friends. Feeling guilty and wanting the re-live the football match again, uses the time-machine to go back by 12 hours. In a hurry instead of 12 hours he goes back to 1202 AD.

It is a fictional story – created on Bibilical theme, when Saint Nicholas is walking with thousands of small children from Europe to Jerusalam – hoping that when the sea will come – as it parted for Moses – it will part for them too leading them to Jerusalam. But in this game – there is an evil character whose plan is to sell the children in slave market.

Our hero, who is helped by the heroine – helps the crusade's walk and exposes the evil. He wants to come back with the heroine but is not able to come. The movie ends up when he with the permission of his mother going back to 1202 AD.

The movie is set perfectly – costumes are good. The problems are the actors – they look amateurish, right from the theatre – who try their best to act – but do not deliver as expected.

This movie is a children's fantasy movie and is very popular in Netherlands. It has also got an international release with English Dubbing. Luckily I was able to see the movie in English with Dutch sub-titles.

Overall the movie is okay – could have been better.
