Beautiful!
4 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

I had nothing to do yesterday and for some reason I felt like watching Ronja Rövardotter. (I reason can be that it's spring.) It was pretty long time ago I saw it, but I remebered that I liked it like everyone else that hve seen it. So I started watching and it was even better that I remebered it. It' such a beautiful movie. The caracters, the nature and the music. Everything is perfect! I really like how strong Ronja and Lovis are. Lovis especially, when she's ordering the robbers to get out. And of course Ronja is the same way and I like the way she moves out because of what Mattis has done. She does what she like. Then the nature is beautiful and the music to that. I cry alot in this movie and most of the time it is because it's so beautiful. Also I get sad when the movie is over. I just want to go out side in to this big forest. =) It also makes me long for the summer. I'm so happy that it is such film as Ronja. Thanks to Astrid Lindgren! And also thanks to Tage Danielsson and everyone else who made this movie!
