Okay but disappointing
20 July 2011 | by Atreyu_IISee all my reviews

This is one of the many Swedish movies based on novels by Astrid Lindgren. It tells the story of Rasmus, a boy who runs away from an orphanage and meets a tramp named Oskar. The tramp is portrayed by no other than Allan Edwall (Mattias from 'Bröderna Lejonhjärta'). Rasmus is portrayed by Erik Lindgren.

It's not a bad movie, but it's pretty average. I personally find it nothing special. Realistically it isn't much more than a not completely successful musical with a somehow dull plot. Even the beauty of the colored Swedish cinematography isn't enough to save it.

Although the Swedish film industry seems to be too small to have much reviews and people who know it, I'm still surprised that I'm the first person to review this film. There must have at least a few people who know it, even if those people are all Swedish and if the number of them can be counted by the fingers.
