A classic of children's cinema, 20 December 2006
Author: intelearts from the big screen

Truly without any shadow of a doubt a masterpiece of children's cinema. Totally different from US or European cinema: there is no play to the emotions here. It is simply who and what Pippi is: and it is deeply enthralling to children.

We have three children who all LOVE watching these. They are not clever, or brilliantly filmed, have no CGI whatsoever and yet they come back to them again and again and again.

For a child what can be more exciting to have a friend who doesn't need adults, is generous, fun, mischievous, silly, has fantastic adventures, AND is the strongest (yes! strongest!) girl in the world.

This series shaped a generation of Swedes: it is truly is one of the best of all children's cinema. Adults may not get it as much as their children will. Best for those around 3-7 you will be amazed at what they see that we no longer do. Hurrah for Pippi!
