The books author, Astrid Lindgren, did not care for this adaption and once told Lasse Hallström, another director of her works, that "I will try not to like you. Because all the directors I like only end up dead" (Refering to both long time collaborator Olle Hellbom, who adapted most of her books, as well as Tage Danielsson who died shortly after completing Ronja Rövardotter), but said of Vladimir Grammatikov that he "isn't in any mortal danger".

I am going alone.

As a 40 year-old man, childrens fantasy films usually aren't my first (or even second) choice of movies. I ran across this film on Disney years ago, and videotaped it. It is a good escape to childhood fantasies (especially from someone who had a rough childhood and who often wished something like this would have happened for real!) I loved the music also. If you have kids and see this one, grab it. If you had a childhood you longed to escape from, see it, too. The production values were excellent, also.
