Angry Man


Siblings Tommy and Annika Settergren have fun with their friend Pippi Longstocking at her house Villa Villekulla, until they lose track of time and are greeted at home by their bossy parents, who address them before they angrily run off to bed. Pippi joins the family at breakfast the following morning, when Tommy and Annika, asked by their family to cut the weeds off their strawberry patch, are fed up with not having fun, so they bitterly decide to run away from home. Feeling that their two children might be serious about this, the Settergrens send Pippi to look after them. Pippi, Tommy, and Annika disembark on a long and rigorous trek away from home, during which they befriend an eccentric peddler named Konrad, travel from town to town, ride on top of a train, ride a flying car, and other fun adventures. But the harsher their journey gets, Tommy and Annika eventually learn that they had it a lot better back at home after all... Written by John Paul Cassidy <>

Crazy Credits

The original Swedish version opens with Pippi riding astride her horse, Lilla Gubben, against a beautiful sunset, in slow motion. (The film's title is seen here.) A Western-style instrumental arrangement of the film's theme song, "Sommarsången" ("Summer Song"), permeates this scene. We then see a brief scene of Tommy and Annika entering Pippi's home, Villa Villekulla, with Pippi's pet monkey, Mr. Nilsson, in a small bed. Tommy and Annika then attempt to bake bread. Then, the opening credits continue. The same arrangement of "Sommarsången" as before now bursts into full gentle rhythm with soft bongo drums, as we see a montage of Pippi riding Lilla Gubben at full speed in the sunset, some in real-time speed, others in slow-motion. (And occasionally, even two boxed-in shots over black, with some of the credits filling in the black spaces.) The opening credits then conclude with Pippi reaching her destination, Villa Villekulla.

One of the best series of all time!
24 February 2000 | by (Texas, USA) – See all my reviews

All four of these films were really good. This one has Pippi and her two friends runaway from home because they are tired of parents rules. So Pippi takes them on a venture they will never forget. Inger Nilsson who plays Pippi did a fantasic job despite you can tell voices were dubbed. Watching Inger Nilsson was just great and that's why these are great films!
