Storyline

De avonturen familiefilm BENNIE STOUT speelt zich af in de jaren 30.

Benjamin Bennie Stout doet zijn naam eer aan. Samen met zijn zeepkist, een zelfgemaakt trapauto, zet hij de boel regelmatig op stelten. Bovenaan zijn verlanglijstje voor Sinterklaas staat de nieuwe glimmende trapauto, die hij in de etalage van de speelgoedwinkel heeft gezien. Maar het is crisistijd en Bennies vader besluit om voorlopig in Spanje te blijven om extra geld te verdienen.

Bennie heeft nog maar één wens: hij vraagt Sinterklaas ervoor te zorgen dat zijn vader snel thuis komt, zodat ze met de hele familie pakjesavond kunnen vieren.

Al snel komt Bennie erachter dat dat niet zo eenvoudig is. Hij bedenkt een list om zijn vader zelf op te halen. Hij schrijft stiekem zijn naam bij de stoute kinderen in Het Grote Boek van Sinterklaas. Want als stout jongetje moet je mee in de zak naar Spanje en laat dat nu precies zijn waar Bennie het allerliefste naar toe wil.

The perfect Dutch family movie.
5 December 2013 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Something very is odd is up with that 5.5 score on IMDb. We see it with a lot of non-American movies - there are people randomly giving 1 point to movies in order to influence voting for whatever reason.

In reality, this is one of the best Dutch family movies. It has all the traditional Sinterklaas ingredients and gives it a very funny twist with the naughty kids hung in bags in the ship.

I assume the movie will not really appeal to a non-Dutch audience since all major ingredients are vital to one of the main Dutch holidays but unknown abroad: the steamship from Spain, Sinterklaas and his Pieten, the pepernoten (gingerbread cookies), etcetera... it's all just as plausible as Santa and his flying reindeer, and just as real to our children.

The movie also provides an explanation as to why Sinterklaas stopped shipping naughty children to Spain.

For any Dutch family, this movie is a must-see. People without kids, or who aren't Dutch, may still appreciate the scenic settings, the winter atmosphere and the good acting.
