I can't think of a movie based upon a book or novel by Astrid Lindgren that is bad. Ok, SOME movies are pretty silly... But there's NO ONE that I don't like.
In my opinion "Ronja, the robber's daughter" is one of the greatest Swedish movies ever. I enjoyed it the first time I saw it and I still do.(many years later...) As a child, I always wanted to BE like Ronja; free, independent and with a whole forest to play in.
The music and songs are so right and always makes me wanna sing along.
The characters are unforgettable; Old Skalle-Per, Ronja's caring mother Lovis and her macho-father Mattis.
The best part is when Ronja and Birk moves out into the forest, but nothing is boring. Anyone who likes nice stories, romance and good acting should see this movie.
I give "Ronja Roeverdotter" a big and happy 8+.
