Pretty good family movie
29 April 2005 | by adrichemSee all my reviews

This movie is better than one would suspect. After spotting the movie poster I thought this would be one of those happy-family-show at Christmas-movies. But, there's more than the obvious in this movie. After the big turn, the death of Remco's father, the life of the boy changes dramatically. The evolution of the kid is filmed very well.

However, Jean vd Velde didn't forget the (mid-aged)kids. So, this movie contains enough for them to be entertained, creating a nice mix of football(soccer)action combined with psychology.

After all, a very entertaining movie. Not a masterpiece, but very good. Especially considering the Dutch movie budgets, which of course are not to be compared with the Hollywood budgets.
