A classic for any Swede born in the 70's
25 February 2005 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

In the government state TV monopoly, this easily outclassed most Christmas reruns and became a classic for a whole generation, much like Ivanhoe did just a couple of years later.

"Bränn, bränn" "Mamma, jag har mejat ner en hel tomtearmé"

And also the amazing slow walk of the trolls over the Bridge. Actually, I think LOTR had the same problem (just walk to the side to avoid the freaking flood, damn it)... but here it is much worse. Also, the trolls seemed pretty helpless against the superior intelligence of the gnomes, but that is perhaps not a worry with a children TV thing. Anyway, it is great fun and now my daughter is enjoying it as well :-)
