If you liked Dik Trom and are looking for another such movie, I have here a few recommendations. I’ll try to update this page regularly so for now I’ll only add a few names to the recommended movies list. Mostly all titles here will include family movies but I’ll also add a few categories here in case you’re searching for great Dutch (not family genre) movies, etc.
Best Family Movies
Some of the titles here include animations, classic movies, etc., that are completely different from Dik Trom. But to my mind, these are the best movies to watch with your family.
It’s a Wonderful Life (1946) – a classic movie about a man and his angel. Maybe you haven’t seen it but you probably know the phrase “Every time the bell rings, the angel gets his wings back”. It’s not only one of the best family movies, it’s among top movies in the world. A must-see movie, without a doubt.
The Princess Bride (1987)
Finding Neverland (2004) – a new adaptation of a Peter Pan movie. I’ve seen it years ago and I really enjoyed it. It’s fun, sad and very inspiring.
Whale Rider (2002)
The Jungle Book (1967)
Seconhand Lions (2003)
The Secret of a Roah Inish (1994)
The Parent Trip (1961)
Best Movies from Netherlands
Miss Minoes (2001) – if for no other reason, I would recommend watching this movie just because of its fantastic concept. Maybe now very few things still surprise us but this movie may just be it.
Tussen 10 en 12 (2014)
Secrets of War – I’ve watched this movie quite recently. Maybe I wouldn’t normally go for this kind of a movie but you already know that Dik Trom (Michael Nierse) plays an important role in the movie.
Mister Twister: Class of Fun (2012)
