This week Samsa started shooting WIPLALA by Tim Oliehoek

Wiplala, the hero of the film, is a boy of about fourteen years old. Although he is only four inches tall, he’s not a leprechaun but a ‘wiplala’ from the Land of Wiplala. Wiplalas have a special gift, called ‘betinkling’, which allows them to cast spells on anything and anyone.

The problem is that Wiplala is not very good at ‘betinkling’. That’s why he decides to leave the Land of Wiplala. After a long journey through a mouse tunnel, he arrives in the kitchen of the Blom family: Mr Blom, who is a writer of learned books and a single parent, his dyslectic son Johannes (9), his independent daughter Nella Della (13) and their cuddly cat called Fly.

Tim Oliehoek’s fame is on the rise ever since he graduated from the Dutch Film and Television Academy. After having directed a large number of commercials, he now is a major director of films who has directed several successful comedies. Almost 200,000 people went to the cinema to see Tim’s film debut Vet Hard, a successful remake of the Danish film Old Men in New Cars. His film Spion van Oranje reached gold status in a mere two weeks. In between these two films he directed two seasons of the popular multicultural comedy series Shouf Shouf Habibi. In 2007, the series received a “Rose D’Or” nomination in the category Comedy. His third film PizzaMaffia is expected to be shown in cinemas in 2011.
