A German business man, Volkswagner, comes to Österlen in the south of Sweden to build Deutschneyland, a gigantic amusement park for German tourists. The local councilors and the member of parliament are all in favor of the idea, although it will turn vast areas into parking lots for cars. The Lindberg family does not like the idea and with the help of a little magic, they start scheming against it. Written by
All music in this movie was written by Evert Taube. Hasse and Tage wanted to use his music in order to give the movie a more Swedish touch. But they also asked him to write a new song for them. Tage explained the plot to Evert and mentioned that the land they were trying to rescue was called Änglamark (roughly translated to Angelland or Angeldomain). Taube liked the word and wrote the new song Änglamark which became the theme song of the movie. See more »

If a movie can be a national anthem, this movie is it - for Swedes and Sweden. Comics Tage and Hasse hit every note right in this remarkable and "lucky" movie. When "Äppelkriget" is shown in Svenska Ord festivals - the whole country turns out. Maybe you have to be Swedish to fully appreciate this wonderful flick - but with music by national bard Evert Taube and a magnificent cast, this movie simply cannot fail!
