Storyline

14 year old Sven is a technical genius, who has rebuilt an old caravan into a radio communication center. Via radio he is in contact with his father, who works at a big ship at the other side of the globe. One day the radio communication is suddenly interrupted by something which sounds like a Latin mass. In school Sven attends a lesson about radio-astronomy. The teacher explains that astronomers can receive radio waves that are thousand years old. Sven understands that the Latin mass he heard was transmitted to him from another age. He gets curious and starts making experiments by connecting his radio kit to bigger aerials. When he sits in the caravan together with his friends Bo and Petra, they not only hear the Latin mass on his radio, but the whole caravan is turned into a time-machine that brings them to the Middle Ages. They get in trouble with some warriors, who capture Petra, while Sven and Bo escape with the help of their time-machine. The two boys have to go back to the ...

Trivia

When Sven hears the Latin chant on the radio for the second time, he marks the spot on the radio display where he hears it, with a cross and a ring around it. This is also happens to be the "sign of the sun", and old Christian symbol. See more »

Forget "Back to the future" - this is "Miraklet i Valby"!
29 March 2004 | by MotorskallenSee all my reviews

I remember that I watched this movie when I was ten (I am 18 at the writing moment), and I loved this movie. It was very welldone and ... ehm ... like we say in Sweden "finurlig"! It reminds a bit of "Back to the future", but without all those wellknown actors and great special effects and everything. That's what makes this movie so good - the actors are those kind of actors you've never heard about, the special effects are nothing more than a bunch of flashes (well, allmost not even that), and the time machine is a - caravan. That's right - a caravan! What more can I tell you? Well, it's fun to see a bunch of kids go back in time and fight against middle age soldiers. It's fun to see how they change history in many ways.
