Trivia

The story probably takes place in the 1940s but there are numerous, likely purposely, historical errors. For example the first Swedish TV broadcast didn't occur until 1954, and the movie they watch is referred to as "old" even though it's from 1944. See more »

Swedish Christmas
15 September 2005 | by pleineluneSee all my reviews

This lovely little story really represents Christmas as I know it... in Sweden most people spend a good part of Christmas Eve watching TV and this is one of the shows that has come to be a celebrated tradition, broad-casted every Christmas Eve for the last couple of decades. It is the tale of a modern day Robin-Hood whose generosity at first is met with suspicion but finally he manages to remind everyone he meets what Christmas is all about - giving and loving not greed for all the right presents.

The animations are funny and well done and the warm and comforting voice of Tage Danielsson guides us through the film, leaving us with a warm fuzzy beautiful Christmas feeling deep within.
