Family film DIK TROM continues success
Dutch feature film DIK TROM (directed by Arne Toonen) attracted more than 256.000 visitors to the Dutch cinema since its theatrical release on November 24, 2010, making this film the most successful family film of the Christmas holidays.
The film already had a very good start. Within just 2 days after its theatrical release on November 24, 2010, the fattest film of the year entered the Dutch Top 20 of most visited films at number 6 and within 5 days DIK TROM received 30.000 visitors. On December 14 the film received the status of Golden Film for more than 100.000 tickets sold.
DIK TROM is a fun family film, based on the characters from the books by C. Joh. Kievit. Dik is a happy, honest and slightly overweight boy whose parents one day decide to move to Thin City to open a restaurant. But it seems that a waistline-altering restaurant is the last thing Thin City wants. Dik (his name means fat in Dutch) is also having trouble blending in and is, for the first time, aware of his own body - especially after falling in love with Lieve. Will Dik win her heart? And will Thin City realise that calories are really not so important?
DIK TROM is produced by Eyeworks Film & TV Drama and is distributed in the Netherlands by Benelux Film Distributors. The film is Arne Toonen’s first feature film.
