Pupil Abel is the victim of Laura's nasty prank, yet gets accidentally blamed and overreacts. His ma withdraws him from school and gets him a job as lift-boy. But its' a special lift: when he pushes the forbidden green button, it takes him, Laura, Jozias Tump and Maria Klaterhoen to Manhattan. There he's mistaken by a rich bitch who looks like his mother for her long missing son Johnny. When a police helicopter comes to tow the lift cabin, the Dutchmen get back in. It takes them to a Latin American country, Perugona. The new revolutionary leader realizes presidents live about one year, so he gives the job to Mr. Tump, who saved his life. The news coverage attracts Abel's and Johnny's family, in time for an even weirder finale.Written by
Rick van Gastel was almost killed in the scene where Abeltje's mother lands the seaplane near the scaffolding he stands on. The plane crashed into the scaffolding, and Van Gastel only escaped by jumping out of the way. The footage of the incident is included in the film. See more »
The airplane is shot, leaving bullet holes along the port side, but then when it later takes off, the bullet holes are gone. See more »
When I saw this movie I thought I was in my childhood. Slow but a nice movie for little children. Nice because I read the novel years ago. The movie is about a lift boy en fly through the air. High in the sky Abeltje discovers how to 'move' the elevator.
