Magic.
2 August 2008 | by (Konstanz, Germany) – See all my reviews

This film is cleared, in Germany, for 6 year olds and up. It describes scenes from the life of a 6-year-old Swedish boy, Åke. And it does it, oh so thrillingly...

At my age of 52, I really felt some memories of the distant past. The experiences and feelings of a young boy (son of a country doctor, in 1923 or so) are very vividly brought to life. Although I never had a schizophrenic cousin, and never sent a blindfolded playpal into the winter night, I could empathize with Åke very deeply. This is very strong story-telling, most notably of the obsessions and anxieties of young persons.

Take the giant pretzel delivery (overcoming a manic preacher) scene. Unforgettable. Or the wooden horse, humiliated as an ugly dog.

This movie has no action, no romance, no comedy. But it's extremely strong, still. I'm very glad that I've finally seen it (after buying it for €1 from the discount bin, and stacking it for half a year.) I found it a great experience, unlike any other movie I've seen before, and can recommend it to every boy or girl of 6 or more years. 9/10.
