Exciting and fun movie for all!
21 September 2015 | by (Stockholm) – See all my reviews

So, when I looked the movie up here there wasn't really much to go on, other than that the language was in dutch, and there was an awesome photo. But bored as I usually am, I gave it a chance, with low expectations, non at all actually.

It starts of quietly, but the excitement is there, you are wondering what is gonna happen, and as the movie goes on you cant really see the future as I feel most of the movies these days give you. Which is great, I hate being bored of a movie because I already know what is around the corner.

So this movie was great, I felt the Arrietty vibe but with so much more, I would love to see something like this but maybe with a little more build to it, more background.

See it, totally worth watching. Love love love!
