One of the earliest movie adaptations by an Astrid Lindgren's novel
29 August 2011 | by Atreyu_IISee all my reviews

Overall, this is a story for children but anyone who enjoys innocent and cute childlike tales can watch this, no matter the age. Even for those who have absolutely no childhood connection at all to this little film, it can bring bright childhood memories, as it deals with a type of childhood that doesn't exist anymore.

This story takes place in a small community, apparently an island, in a rural area next to the water. The children are great in their actings, especially the little girl who plays Skrållan. Skrållan is so utterly cute and adorable, truly a sweetie yet simultaneously a minor troublemaker. She looks like an angel yet she does a lot of mischief. She is practically a baby and naturally she doesn't have conscience of the things she does. She does it innocently and without any harm. In her childish world, what she does is fun. It's impossible not to smile with her innocent mischief.

Like most Swedish films I saw so far, this one is very nicely filmed, with lovely cinematography, good actors and a harmless plot, but still it lacks something.
