Comedy about a boy who is bullied and therefore decides to boost his image by saying that he belongs to a mafia family. Rik Boskamp, son of a nerdy accountant, will not be bullied. Inspired by a mafia film he gets an idea. He causes his elders to move and that his father is looked at for the dangerous mafia boss Paulo Boskampi in the new village. It soon turns out to work the plan. Rikkie Boskampi is no longer bullied, everyone is afraid of Paulo and treats them with respect. Until a bully from the past emerges. How long Rikkie may lie still before its discovered? This family film is based on the book by Marjon Hoffman.
Went with the kids (7&10) to this stylish screen adaption of Marjon Hoffman's novel and it really did inspire our children's fantasies. Our oldest was familiar with the book but she was very pleased that the movie contained new and different elements to show Rikkie's transformation.
Although this movie revolves around serious subjects like honesty and bullying it never felt too heavy to me. Our youngest did found it a bit scary at times but that only added juice to his imagination.
The story borrows some classic situations from (crime) movies and mixes them with stop hammer time... ... ... recognizable events which were a joy to watch both for our children and me as parent.
