At one part in the film, Birk sneaks over to "Mattisborgen" to meet Ronja in the basement. This is impossible because of the gap between the two castles which is obviously too deep to have a basement below. See more »
Vargklämman is snowed in, not a robber will get out all winter.
Snowed in? But how am I supposed to meet... I mean, how am I supposed to get out into the woods?
You won't get there until spring comes, Ronja mine.

We watch this movie every year in December at the U film society (mnfilmarts.org) It's got English subtitles too. I just can't figure out where they got it. I only see a reference to an apparently non-existent US distributor called 1900 distributing. I just bought a DVD of it from a UK web site. Swedish language only. My wife understands Swedish, my son and I will have to learn ;). After an exhaustive online search, I found it available in all the Scandanavian languages on DVD and German on VHS. Sigh. Bloody thing is ONLY in region 2 and pal format too of course... Double sigh... Still, HIGHLY recommended. I suppose someday we'll see the film version with subtitles released on DVD.
