Well everyone starts young!, for anyone now when Stellan is emerging as an international character actor, the "Bombi Bitt och jag" could be called in modern words a TV min-series. It was made in black-and-white, Swedish Television didn't went colour until around 1969-1970, and based on the popular stories (or Tall Tales) of Piraten-Nilsson. The character of Bombi Bitt (Stellan) is a kind of free spirit, that more or less follows his own rules, and also know the rules of the game when it matters, he can cheat in card-games, he knows all the odd characters, and turns it to his fortune. The "Jag" or "I" is an observer who is amazed and big-eyed about everything Bombi-Bitt do. Bombi-Bitt is a dream that the "Jag" character only in his dream wishes he was himself. The trouble is that the Bombi Bitt person excists and the "Jag" character is actually joining along in the adventures.
I have a hard time thinking this could actually interest All new Stellan fans.
