great movie when you like cats
12 December 2001 | by liona_samploniusSee all my reviews

Like all of annie m.g. schmidts novels, Minoes is a creative, crazy and fantastic children's story. I've read the story when I was a little girl, and I was very anxious when I heard they were going to make a movie of it. But when I saw it, I was rather disappointed, although I liked the cats and the actors. I think it's a nice movie for little children, and for people whom like cats, but when you're planning to get nostalgic, don't go see it!

All within a nice movie, certainly for Dutch understandings. Regrettably it appeared at the same time as the famous Harry Potter (great movie b.t.w)
