Trifle from Widerberg, but a good one

One of Bo Widerberg's lesser known works.

The story about the six year old Fimpen who get to play with the national team of Sweden (who appear as themselves) is really charming.

The scene when the team with Ralf Edström, Ronnie Hellström and others complaining to coach "Åby". About reading the bedtime story 14 Little Bears over and over again to Fimpen is really funny.

So is Carl Billquist as the little too enthusiastic principal.

Unfortunately the sound quality is rather poor and I wonder if that might be the reason why it hasn't been shown very much?

Still, this is a good children's film that not only children are going to find amusing.
