Family film with a nice touch
3 January 2011 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Nice Dutch Familyfilm with a nice story, good acting and a hilarious comedian Theo Maassen. My only point of discussion is Chantal Janssen in a role of mother of 4 children and married with Theo Maassen. I just can't believe it. Theo Maassen plays a very likable Father who is not the most handy guy, Chantal Janssen plays a teacher. The children act very nice, and the inside joke over the pancakes every day on table, give the youngest children in the cast an extra dimension. Except the Leiden theater i had no idea where the film was shot, Wassenaar? Naarden? The sets are fantastic and the cinematography is beautiful Probably one of the best Dutch Youth films for the last 5 years Just go to the cinema now it's still there and if not buy the DVD and sit down with the hole family and enjoy
