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.
Borka and his band and Mattis's band of robbers are rivals. Birk, his parents and their band live in the wild in Mattisforrest. 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
We watch this movie every year in December at the U film society (mnfilmarts.org) It's got English subtitles too. I just can't figure out where they got it. I only see a reference to an apparently non-existent US distributor called 1900 distributing. I just bought a DVD of it from a UK web site. Swedish language only. My wife understands Swedish, my son and I will have to learn ;). After an exhaustive online search, I found it available in all the Scandanavian languages on DVD and German on VHS. Sigh. Bloody thing is ONLY in region 2 and pal format too of course... Double sigh... Still, HIGHLY recommended. I suppose someday we'll see the film version with subtitles released on DVD.
