13 year old Kim feels at home in the wilderness. One night, nature's soul appears to him in the form of an Indian, and designates him nature's protector. Kim decides to remain out in the forest and live off what nature provides. Soon, however, Kim's assignment becomes more serious. He has to try and save as many animals as he can from man's pointless killing, and he will stop at nothing. Written by

Stefan Jarl is one of Sweden's most interesting personalities and "Jag är din krigare" is as special as he is. What starts out as something of a naturemovie you'd recommend to kids, develops into a very scary and painful story about fanaticism and the evil done by man's hand. Jarl is as pissed off as he always is and doesn't portrait the grown-ups of this movie in a very sympathetic way. Kim is the hero, but even he towards the end starts to lose control. What kind of 14-yearold is so dedicated to saving the nature that he will stop at nothing? Not even killing other humans. Basically; don't judge this movie too quickly. In the beginning it's mostly natureromance and a cute story about a boy, his fox and his search for peace among the animals of the forest. But then the movie changes, you can't say when, and you start getting chills down your spine because you realize things will go wrong. People will try to hurt Kim and he will probably try to hurt them back. Robin Milldoff is superb in the role of Kim, and this is really his movie. His stern face, that reflects Kim's determination, tells even more about him than what he says. Jarl is frustrated, almost desperate, at the thought of what man is doing to Mother Nature. He wants you to open your eyes to what is going on around you. If this young boy can do it; why can't you?
