Emil's reputation for being a troublemaker makes the Svensson family's neighbours take up a collection for sending the boy off to America. But even if he among other unfortunate mishaps causes his father to get stuck in the outhouse window and get bitten by crawfish, all is forgotten when he skillfully wins the family a free horse. And when Alfred the farmhand gets seriously ill, Emil puts his own life on the line, venturing into a snow storm to get his best friend to a doctor before it is too late. Written by Signy

User Reviews

Good clean fun for kids
13 September 2006 | by paaskynenSee all my reviews

All the children's books by Astrid Lindren have made it to the screen as films or as TV series. The adventures of Emil i Lönneberga did both. The film Nya hyss av Emil i Lönneberga was serialised as part of a TV series that won wide acclaim with kids all over the world.

The film is set in the Swedish province of Småland, an area of small farms and villages, before the Second World War. Life for children is idyllic, summer and winter, like in a Carl Larsson painting. Emil is an inventive and curious boy who gets into trouble with his parents all the time, because of well-meaning pranks, but his heart of gold saves the day.

This film is suitable for children of all ages.
