one of the outstanding works for television as they were made in the '70s
30 November 2002 | by See all my reviews

So maybe I'm unable to objectively consider pippi langstrump/longstocking/Langstrumpf, because I loved her so much when I was 8 years old.

But still, I saw one of the two or three parts of "Pippi and the pirats" (whatever the english title was), and I was amazed! Inger Nilsson plays the main part with incredible freshness. She's as convincing as she can be and the Tv-movies and series were related to her talent. The directing and the rythm are both pretty high-level for a children's movie.

Whatever, I sincerely find it hard to believe that someone discovering these series today could be that disppointed and insensible to its charms, as seems to suggest the 6.7-rating by IMDb-users. Maybe it's just incompatible with the look of our days. But is it that far from the Harry Potter image? Old-fashioned and low-budget, it shows, I'm the first to admit it, but the other qualities seem so obvious to me !

Maybe also it's a very european cultural object.

Actually, I'd like to hear a bit more from those who think this is worth 7, 6 or even less out of ten as a children's movie which I think generous, fun and quite loveable...

Golden memories! I shouldn't argue, but i wanted to defend my beloved little Pippi, the strongest girl in the world. I'm 36 years old now, mind you.
