Storyline

Life is cruel for little Winky. She has been forced to leave her native China for the mysterious and distressing world of a place named Holland. But she gradually adapts and finds solace by becoming attached to Sara, an old pony. Of course her parents would never allow her to have a horse but at school she learns that an old man with a white beard called Santa Claus brings presents to all the good children in Holland. She just has to ask him. Written by Guy Bellinger

A very nice also-for-the-parents children's movie.
26 November 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Winky Wong is from China and moves to the Netherlands. Of course, this comes with problems .. Winky meets the Dutch tradition of Sinterklaas! A whole new worlds opens for little Winky who simply asks for a horse, because she was told that, if she was good throughout the year, you can get ánything you want. And because she loses the horse she loved the most, she just asks for a new horse. Will she get one? Mixed with real dialogue and voice-over, this movie is extremely cute. You will fall in love with Winky Wong immediately and the way she handles her new life. Everything just fits perfectly and this is the most wonderful holiday movie I've seen in times.

Go see Het Paard van Sinterklaas if you want to know more about Sinterklaas, an interesting event in the Netherlands. Go see Het Paard van Sinterklaas if you want to be amazed by acting skills from kids under 10 years. Just GO see Het Paard van Sinterklaas and his follow up: Waar is het Paard van Sinterklaas?
