Love Is All
A romantic comedy told with a set of interwoven Christmas tales about life, love, forgiveness and caring. A heroic vagrant becomes a TV sensation Santa Claws, while a prince takes a menial job at a department store to woo his sweetheart.
If only one of these stories could be true...
Occasionally enjoyable movie-kitsch with some ill-advised gigs by Dutch celebs.
Way better than expected. Really funny
A netherlandish version of "Love... Actually". It is not bad per se but yiu just care so much more for the characters in the original that this movie seems flawed in comprehention. All in all it is entertaining though.
So this is basically a Dutch version of Love Actually. Not necessarily a bad thing, but it doesn't scream originality. It has the same sort of premise: the romantic lives of various interconnected people in the lead up to Christmas (or in this case Sinterklaas). It's predictable too, but that's what you have to expect going into a film like this.
I still had a good time with it. It's a very cute film, and that's cool sometimes. The cast are all good too, which helps. I especially enjoyed Carise van Houten's performance as Kiki. She was lovely.
So yeah, if you're a fan of Love Actually then you're bound to enjoy this.
Personal reference. Sorted by date added - oldest to newest.

This is a very long list that I'll probably never finish.
