Strange Swedish children's film may be cherished by some and bend the minds of others, 12 December 2005
Author: dbborroughs from Glen Cove, New York

I have no idea what to say about this film except that it struck me as really strange.

Dunderklumpen, a lonely hobo breaks into a families home and brings several toys to life then carries them off so he won't be alone. The young boy of the house pursues the animated Klumpen into the wilds of Sweden. His father sees the boy running off and pursues his son. Surreal (and potentially mind-bending) adventures follow.

Nothing like laying in bed not feeling well and watching a twisted children's film. A live action film with animated characters this is one of the most bizarre films I've seen in a while. I'm not sure if its the English dub or because I'm not a kid but this film comes off as really weird, and I'm not sure its in a good way (this is definitely not Disney material). There is something about the odd mix of animation and reality that doesn't mesh for me, with some of the exploits of the characters (breaking into the house, setting the fire) seeming to be more dangerous than humorous. It reminds me of the bad "good for you" children's films that I avoided like the plague when I was growing up.

Forgive me there is just something off about this film that I can't put my finger on. Maybe its because I'm not from Sweden or its of a time or a bad dub, but this film gave me the willies more than the sillies. It does have some really good animation which makes me wish it was in a better film. If you want a surreal children's film or some really good animation give it a try. Beyond that you're on your own.
