Well 'DON'
19 August 2006 | by (Holland) – See all my reviews

In Holland the standard of youth-movies is pretty high. After movies as 'Het Paard van Sinterklaas' and 'Polleke' it isn't easy to come up with a new and original movie. And that really is the only problem with 'Don' (2006).

The movie is in one word 'expactable'. No original storyline and the typical clashes between the good and the bad kids. But is this enough to turn your back to this movie? No, it certainly isn't.

'Don' is first of all, well acted. The kids (supposed to be grade 6'ers) show themselves as complete actors. They handle the emotions and the character what comes with their parts as real individuals. Also the plot is a good example for kids who live in the more difficult neighbourhoods. It shows that it is possible to mix white and black schools.

To cut a long story short, 'Don' is a good and entertaining movie. Not only to watch for your selves, but also to show to your up-growing kids. Especially the ones who are facing the same youth problems.
