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
While filming a tall, skinny man with glasses and a black mustache kept walking around the sets and getting into picture, ruining takes. Eventually director Tage Danielsson lost his temper and asked the man to leave. The whole cast and crew started laughing. It turned at that the annoying man was actor Martin Ljung and that it all was just a prank the crew played on Tage. See more »

This is a fabulous movie, and one that seems to have disappeared completely, at least from this country. I saw this movie in college, long ago and it was a wonderful surprise. It is along the same lines as 'Waking Ned Devine', full of oddball characters, a small isolated town, and the impingement of the outside world. If you can find this movie, count yourself lucky.
This is not a serious movie, and it's not quite ART, but it is very imaginative and has much to do with the Swedish culture, their sense of what's right, and their myths and legends. I was instantly charmed and nearly rolling on floor in fits of laughter. I highly recommend this movie.
