Good clean fun for kids, 13 September 2006
Author: P.S. Paaskynen from Tornio, Finland

All the children's books by Astrid Lindren have made it to the screen as films or as TV series. The adventures of Emil i Lönneberga did both. The film Nya hyss av Emil i Lönneberga was serialised as part of a TV series that won wide acclaim with kids all over the world.

The film is set in the Swedish province of Småland, an area of small farms and villages, before the Second World War. Life for children is idyllic, summer and winter, like in a Carl Larsson painting. Emil is an inventive and curious boy who gets into trouble with his parents all the time, because of well-meaning pranks, but his heart of gold saves the day.

This film is suitable for children of all ages.
