Born on a stormy night Ronja begins her life as the heir to the leader of a gang of thieves deep in the Swedish woods. There is a lot of things to beware of in the forest not least other gangs. But as it turns out they are not all bad.
An 8 y.o. Swedish boy always gets into trouble despite good intentions and afterwards ends locked up in a shed. He lives on a farm (before electricity and cars) with his mom, dad, sister, maid, best friend the farmhand and an old woman.
Rasmus lives at an orphanage. He's OK, but wants a mom and a dad, and from time to time some comes to find a child, but they always chose little girls curls. Rasmus realizes he has to run away and find parents himself.
Madicken is a Swedish girl from the upper level family, growing up during the time of first world war which did not include Sweden. She lives happily with her family, experiencing the world and making brave and crazy things.

They move in to Metis-stronghold, which belonged to his ancestors, in an attempt to escape being caught by the king's men. The children have to learn to live in the woods.Written by
I can't think of a movie based upon a book or novel by Astrid Lindgren that is bad. Ok, SOME movies are pretty silly... But there's NO ONE that I don't like.
In my opinion "Ronja, the robber's daughter" is one of the greatest Swedish movies ever. I enjoyed it the first time I saw it and I still do.(many years later...) As a child, I always wanted to BE like Ronja; free, independent and with a whole forest to play in.
The music and songs are so right and always makes me wanna sing along.
The characters are unforgettable; Old Skalle-Per, Ronja's caring mother Lovis and her macho-father Mattis.
The best part is when Ronja and Birk moves out into the forest, but nothing is boring. Anyone who likes nice stories, romance and good acting should see this movie.
I give "Ronja Roeverdotter" a big and happy 8+.
