Best children's film ever!
1 December 2002 | by (Europe) – See all my reviews

Ronja Rövardotter is one of the most brilliant films existing. The book has always been one of my favourites and I was a little bit afraid that the film wouldn't be good enough. When I saw it for the first time I loved it from the very first moment! It's perfect! There's hardly any film which catches you that much like Ronja Rövardotter does. The music is GREAT! All these wild robbers dancing and singing (and running naked out into the snow!). Wonderful! If you haven't seen it: DO!!!! You'll get enchanted!
