Storyline

On an evening in northern Sweden, during one night when the sun only partially sets, the animated character Dunderklumpen comes from the woods to seek some friends to keep him company. In one man's house, he finds toys belonging to a girl named Camilla and a boy named Jens, and brings them to life, whisking them away to the woods where he lives. This adorable and amusing crew includes a little scaredy-cat lion named Lionel, the demanding Doll, the cute harmonica-playing bear Pellegnillot and the ridiculous Dummy the bunny. Jens, Camilla's brother, sees the kidnapping after hearing the toys' cries for help and follows Dunderklumpen, who is not so quick to surrender his new-found company. They are also followed by Beppe, Jens' father, who is worried for his son traveling alone and is at first unaware of why Jens has run off. He is accompanied by a dutiful bumblebee. As a side plot, Dunderklumpen also has a small locked chest with him that contains a great treasure, and he is pursued by ... Written by Anonymous

Representative of an era gone by
28 July 2008 | by paaskynenSee all my reviews

The appeal of the film Dunderklumpen for adults lies mainly in its nostalgic walk down memory lane to the age of innocence. The film is a document of the idealistic world view prevalent in Sweden in the early seventies. It is an eloquent nature idyll, in which children are innocent, fathers are clumsy, money is the root of all evil, criminals are good people at heart and can be rehabilitated and poor, elderly people have a lease on true natural wisdom.

Many of these traits are also present in the work of Astrid Lindgren and Beppe Wolgers was closely involved in the dramatisation of some of her books. The story's idealism is thus deeply rooted in its time and that forms part of its charm. The beautiful natural settings and the jazzy music by Toots Thielemans do the rest.
