During a holiday on the Dutch rural B&B, Suske finds, while diving for Shanulleke, a black diamond. He gives it to Sidonia, who breaks her promise to proudly hold on to it after the local Baron Roger de Lacheloze offers her a hefty price. Their host Alwina tells the legend whoever profits from the stone shall perish by the next new moon. Sidonia gets sick and unable to laugh, the fatal symptom. Barabbas's time-machine sends Lambik, Alwina and the kids to the 16th century, when the legend started, at a magician's tower, to have it destroyed. They soon fall prey to feudal sorcery charges, 'solved' by fatal 'divine ordeal'. Even in they survive that, there's a mysterious black knight after them and the stone. Written by KGF Vissers

A nice kids movie
16 December 2004 | by tvalstar99See all my reviews

When you start seeing this movie, remember: It's a kids movie

The actors are dressed up just as in the comics accept for the strange noses or 6 strings of hair like Lambik. This gives a familiar feeling and must let the viewers feel comfortable.

The actors do their best and I got the feeling they enjoyed themselves. The comic they followed to make this movie isn't the best or the most spectacular one in the series, but is one of the easiest to film because it's a story on itself and doesn't refer to things that have passed in other Suske en Wiske comics.

Because this film is a kids film, just like the comics are for kids, the story is kept simple and has a fast opening where Wiske immediately starts to suspect there is something going on. I as a 24 year old enjoyed this film nonetheless. It has its funny moments and seeing Barabas and Teletijdmachine as well as the jeep where they always use too travel with in the comics gave me a nostalgic feeling. It's good they didn't change too much on the environment, characters and objects. The 1,5 hour is just long enough to don't get bored.

I think the kids will enjoy this film, especially if they are familiar with the comics.
