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 »

This film is perhaps the most charming soap bubble I've ever encountered. I saw theaters full of disenchanted college students leave with the broadest of smiles on their faces and a sense that cynicism might not be the eternal verite after all. Add to that the most delightful images imaginable and you have a film not to be missed by any but the most hardened of hearts.
