Gurin the gnome loves to play tricks on others. In spite of several warnings he just can't help himself, and one morning he wakes up with a foxtail as punishment. Rumors of his fabulous tail soon reach the capital, and the widow Stengelføhn-Glad tries to hire private detective Solan Gundersen to find Gurin. She wants to be the envy of her upper-class friends by owning the luxurious foxtail. But Solan and his sidekick Ludvig doesn't want to see Gurin come to harm. And after refusing the assignment they set out to find the gnome before the widow does. Written by
That's right folks! Couldn't believe my eyes when I saw how underrated this film were, and that's mainly the reason I took my time commenting it.
Have this film in VHS and saw it for the first time with my little brother (age 7). And gosh! This is a warm feel-good nostalgic film that maybe suits best in Christmas! The animations are wonderful, the story and dialog are magical and the characters realistic!
When it comes to the quality of animation compared to todays animated movies this may not have much to come with BUT this title has its own style! Making it equal or even better than today's animation because of its originality - I love the atmosphere the background has created.
I can't think of one bored second - this film is truly magical! Watch it in Christmas eve, with the whole family!
Totally underrated: I give it 10/10, wish there were more films of this kind!
