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

Let children be children
28 August 2011 | by OdanUrrSee all my reviews

This is not one of the best movies you'll ever see, neither is it the best acting you'll ever see but it is extremely hard to find another film that is as beautiful as this. Per Åhlin is somewhat of a god for me and this is his finest work without a doubt, a movie that children enjoy based solely on the purpose that they are children.

It is set in a beautiful landscape in Sweden called Jämtland, where a character called Dunderklumpen blows life into some toys because he has no one to play with, and all the character involved is out for a magical midsummer night.

I showed this movie to my students, they were 11-12 years old at the time and they usually watched kind of grow-up movies and didn't not react when I showed them other movies from my childhood, but this movie have a certain kind of ability to make even the toughest man smile simply because he wants to. They laughed and they were into the story, they saw beautiful nature and they loved all the characters. The music is also very powerful in itself.

A true gem, I recommend that you stop reading this and start watching the movie that has rocked me to my very core ever since I was five years old.
