Direct Dutch Filmclub with ‘Minoes’ Sunday 29 May

Are you looking for an entertaining opportunity to practise your Dutch? On Sunday 29 May there will be a new edition of Direct Dutch Filmclub with Dutch movie ‘Minoes’!


Minoes (Vincent Bal, 2001)

Minoes (1)

Minoes is a charming and funny movie for all ages. It is based on the children’s book Minoes of famous Dutch author Annie M.G. Schmidt (1911 – 1995). Minoes (Carice van Houten) is a very charming young woman, although she displays some rather strange behaviours. She climbs in trees when she sees a dog, she sleeps curled up in a box and sits on the rooftop every night. And oh yeah, she talks to cats. Could it be that she is not as human as she seems? And how can a lady who understands the language of cats help advance the career of a journalist with a writers block?



Direct Dutch filmclub

Four times a year Dutch language school Direct Dutch Institute and Bibliotheek Den Haag, organise a filmclub with Dutch movies for internationals living in The Hague (and surroundings).

Since everybody is required to speak in simple Dutch (no English allowed), this is a great opportunity to actually speak Dutch! Of course there are teachers present who will help you with your Dutch.

In the course of the afternoon, we will watch the movie and discuss it in small groups, ending in a group discussion. Our programme is suitable for everyone with (at least) an elementary knowledge of Dutch (A1/A2) who would like to engage in Dutch culture and build on his or her conversation skills in an informal and fun way.
