Great beginning of the movie franchise!!

'Plop & De Kabouterschat' is a Family film from 1999, made by Studio 100. In 2008 a completely 'remastered' version was released with new special effects and a completely new soundtrack. My review is about that version.

The film starts with the four gnome friends who are in Kabouter Plop's house, keeping a spring cleaning. During the cleaning, Klus suddenly finds a treasure map in the chimney. That treasure map was made by his Uncle Mop. The gnomes go straight away to find this treasure, because they are naturally very curious if there is anything of value in it. But the search is certainly not easy. The gnomes must pass 3 dangerous obstacles. First they have to cross a creepy bridge through a scary swamp, then they have to go through the forest of a thousand birds and finally they have to go through a cave that is about to collapse. If that is still not enough, two other gnomes also find the treasure map that Kabouter Klus had lost along the way. They are now also looking for the treasure..

I have watched this movie many times in my youth so I was really looking forward to reviewing it again. I have to say he was certainly not disappointing. He was just as good and as fun as I can remember. And of course the forests could be expanded a bit more so that there wasn't only a light screen in the background, but that was actually my only annoyance. I think children don't even think about that. I know I didn't when I was younger. The story is very simple and easy so you can keep follow it easily. The film is certainly not too scary for small children. The soundtrack is also really great, as always with Studio 100 films. They have ensured that the scene in the swamp, for example, was not made too scary, but just exciting for the children. Just when I thought the music was going to get a kind of horror sound, it became a little less. Very well done. The special effects were also very good. I found the 'giant human road' very beautiful and just seemed real, the flies at the swamp that were flying around and the moment the cave collapsed were also impressive. I only mention a few moments here. All special effects were beautiful, although I think the scene with the birds could have been better made a lot better with the budget that they had.

In short, I enjoyed this movie very much and I will definitely watch it more often. I recommend to everyone who loves Studio 100 or gnomes to watch this movie. No matter what age. Studio 100 has no age limit. If your heart continues to shine from this like mine, definitely go check this out!!
