This utterly charming classic family film tells the tale of Miss Minoes, a cat who is transformed into a young woman (Carice van Houten) and befriends Tibbe (Theo Maassen), a shy bumbling cub reporter for the local newspaper.
Miss Minoes, still recognized as a cat by the neighborhood felines despite her new appearance, organizes them into a news-gathering service and helps Tibbe become a star reporter. He soon turns investigative and discovers that the popular chairman of the ‘Club For Friends of Animals’ and boss of a nearby factory has evil plans.
Based on the 1970 novel by Annie M.G. Schmidt, Holland’s most beloved writer of children’s stories, MISS MINOES was adapted to film by Vincent Bal in 2001. Released in Holland in December 2001, the film went on to become the most popular Dutch film of the year and winner of the Golden Calf, the Dutch Oscar, for Best Film. In one of her early roles, Carice van Houten (Black Book, Valkyrie) became a star in Holland playing ‘Miss Minoes’ and took home the Golden Calf for Best Actress.
In the US, MISS MINOES won Best Film at the Chicago Children’s Film Festival and despite a DVD release from a now defunct video company as “Undercover Kitty”, this wonderful film has been largely unseen in the US and will finally have its US theatrical debut.
MISS MINOES will be presented with a nearly flawless British-accented English language dub, allowing the film to be easily and widely enjoyed by a young audience.
