Off course this movie is for children, and yes of course everything ends up in a way that's probably a bit too good to be true.
But meanwhile this movie gives a rich view into modern dutch urban society. In that aspect it could compete with a Spike Lee movie, telling you a lot about city(suburban)-life, for once not about New-York, Chicago or San Fransisco, but simply about the Dutch 'Randstad' (the region where all the major city's are concentrated) So if you're a foreigner, and want to know a bit bout this; watch and have a good time!
Apart from all this, the story is just very entertaining, the acting is good and the movie has a nice pace. The two children that play the main characters are sometimes really amazing!
