Here's something that bobbed up from nowhere - a Swing musical made in Sweden in 1940 and anticipating the Donald O'Connor-Jane Powell school films from the 'states.
Once again the stuffy principal doesn't understand her cool new music teacher and the so talented teen age girl that he encourages and who forms a crush on him, despite his interest in the lady gym teacher making those girls in baggy shorts do ill coordinated routines.
The piece has some naive energy, despite going on too long and being short on imagination. Miss Nilson's clean cut appeal is understandable. One of the film's strengths is that the leads are so ordinary. The handling is better than competent but the it disappoints in not offering any real look at WW2 Sweden.
The DVD is excellent quality and has good English titles.
