Sweet children's film
6 December 2007 | by LazySodSee all my reviews

Also known as "Where Is Winky's Horse?" this sequel to "Het Paard van Sinterklaas" follows up on the story of the first film. Winky is allowed to groom the horse of Sinterklaas (Saint Nicholas, who celebrates his birthday on December 5th by giving children presents, more or less known as Santa Claus in other countries). She does it with a lot of love and is quite happy with the task. When her parents tell her she'll be getting horse riding lessons for her next birthday she's thrilled and assuming it'll be on that specific horse. As events roll by the title of the film is explained - the horse disappears and trouble arises.

As a typical children's film about moral, good and bad, confessing mistakes and such this one is not a film to bring many surprised looks on the faces of the audience. Kids that liked the first one will like this sequel, and parents that get dragged along will not be completely bored for it is actually worked out pretty well. The acting of the kid that plays Winky is done well enough to make the character feel completely believable and the other events happening are in place far enough to be accepted too.

The overall sequence of the film feels much like the old style Disney films where things start good, get bad and end good, but that isn't bad. It feels good and works well on the targeted audience - kids in the age group of 4 to 8 years.

Nice enough, 7 out of 10 horses groomed
