I believe that especially all Swedish people born in the 70's have a very special relation to this wonderful movie of Astrid Lindgren. Since I am one of those born in the 70's, this movie is a part of my childhood and I can't give it anything less than a perfect score. One of those movies that every parent are obligated to let your children watch! (Although it is a movie for children, I also believe that parents can appreciate it, by the way...)
