Synopsis by Mark Deming
You better watch out, because Saint Nick is coming town and he has some scores to settle in this horror story from the Netherlands. It's December, and Dutch youngsters are awaiting the arrival of Sinterklaas, aka St. Nicholas, who brings gifts to children who have been good all year. Meanwhile, Sophie (Escha Tanihatu) is a teenage girl who uses a letter from Sinterklaas as a way to beak the news to her unfaithful boyfriend Frank (Egbert-Jan Weeber) that they're over, and classmate Lisa (Caro Lenssen) makes some pocket money babysitting as the adults party and Frank impersonates one of Sinterklaas's helpers at a celebration for children. However, Goert (Bert Luppes), a local police officer, knows something the kids don't -- Sinterklaas is real and has a nasty disposition, rising each year to wreck bloody revenge for an act of terrible violence centuries before. Sint (aka Saint) received its North American premiere at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival.
