A nice feel-good movie with excellent camera work and acting
6 April 2005 | by Evelien23See all my reviews

I've seen this movie together with my eight year old niece and my grandmother, all three of us really enjoyed it in our own way. This film has a little something for everyone. I really liked the technical side of the movie, excellent camera work and acting. My grandmother knew the story from her childhood and loved the historic city of Amsterdam of which some parts were digitally rebuild in a marvelous way. Last but not least my little niece was truly grasped by the story and the magical world of Kees. Altogether, I strongly disagree with the previous comment, this movie is definitely worth your time. A classic dutch book translated into a beautiful film.
