simply great
2 February 2002 | by SijtzevanderMeerSee all my reviews

there is nothing more to say, it ìs simply great: good story, good actors, straightforward and heartwarming... Carice van Houten is an ideal Minoes, Thea Maassen is a believeable Tibbe, the cats are welltrained and the voices are wellcast, the atmosphere of it all is simple, typical Dutch...
