Sex & Nudity

  • No sex. In part 5 from 5:50 to 6:50 a young boy and a girl swim nude and lie in the sun, no genitals visible. In part 3 12:07-12:57 grown up nude males wash themselves outside in the snow, filmed from quite a distance. Neither of these scenes has any insinuation.
  • By the way, Dutch rating AL (All Ages, no parental guidance)

Violence & Gore

  • The fighting scenes of the robbers are benign and full with jests at the opponent. No blood, visible or intentional pain, more like wrestling.


  • None. (my soundtrack is Swedish and I cannot judge that, but the Dutch subtitles contain no profanity.)

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • No drugs. No smoking. Mild beer consumption at 'robber parties', without intoxication.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The screaming witchlike birds are kind of scary and will probably upset very young children. They charge at the children screaming with high-pitch voices that they are going to take the children, insinuating eating them. Adventure style, the children hide, and there is no real danger. Still, somewhat scary.
  • If impressionable children are overly worried after part 3, with a cliffhanger of heroine Ronja in a distressing situation -stuck in the snow, alone, expecting an attack of the witchlike birds, parents may opt to show the start of part 4 immediately, at the start of which the situation is resolved.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • One particularly strong scene features the death of one of the elder members of the group. Written in a style that is typical for Astrid Lindgren the scene is about death, but also life, and love. It will affect the younger and more sensitive viewers, and parents should be around for doing some explaining of the events.
