Kronblom: individualist, amusing, warmhearted underneath and incredibly lazy
10 December 2004 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Having made his debut in 1927, Kronblom remains the most long-lived comic strip in Sweden, and for a long time also one of the most popular. By the 1940s, he had become such a household name that it was decided to bring him onto the silver screen. Another well known character, 91 Karlsson, had appeared in a highly successful feature the previous year and chances were big that Kronblom would make the transition with equal success.

In my opinion, time has been somewhat kinder to KRONBLOM and its one sequel than any of the movies based on 91 Karlsson; while I am sure Karlsson worked as good entertainment when originally released, his character was not really captured that well in the films. Ludde Gentzel, on the other hand, is very good and convincing as Kronblom; not only does he resemble the character quite a bit, he also speaks and behaves in a manner one would expect from him. As an additional treat, we are given a glimpse of the comic strip creator himself, Elov Persson, at the very beginning of the film. Granted, it's these aspects that truly make the film rather enjoyable; the material itself isn't that hilarious, to be honest, but still quite charming.

KRONBLOM was available on VHS several years ago, but as far as I know has not made it to DVD yet. The film is not a "must," but an okay way to spend an hour or so on a rainy day, especially due to Gentzel's performance.
