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

Dutch tradition in a new form
7 November 2005 | by (Amsterdam) – See all my reviews

Anyone who knows, or would like to know about the dutch tradition of Sinterklaas, should simply see this movie. Seeing it in a cinema filled with children makes it even more fun. Meet Winkie Wong, originally from China gets confronted with the upcoming event of Sinterklaas coming to town. Tradition allows children, if they have been good throughout the year, to ask Sinterklaas whatever they would like to get. This makes Winkie hope and think beyond her expectations. Right from the beginning it becomes obvious Winkie would not settle for less then asking for a horse.

And because of the 'weirdness' of this dutch tradition, it makes this movie so cute and a must see for anyone, with or without kids.
