Madelief: Krassen in het Tafelblad

Feature film, 1998, 85 min.

Children's film, like the TV series Madelief, is based on the book by Guus Kuijer. In Krassen in het tafelblad (Scratches in the Table) Madelief is now about ten. Her grandma has died and after the funeral, Madelief wants to know all about grandma, but her mother doesn't want to talk about it and grandpa doesn't say much either. All they know is that grandma cleaned a lot, had her good side, but was not very nice. When Madelief goes to stay with Grandpa for the first time, she finds she can have a good laugh with him, and also discovers a mysterious shed in the neglected garden that belonged to grandma. With a friend from the village, the inquisitive Madelief sets off to unravel grandma's secret.
