Childhood joy and nostalgia
6 December 2003 | by ellendellenSee all my reviews

I love this "short story". I try to watch it every time it's on television. It's about two mothers using their children as participants in a stupid competition. Who talks first, who walks first. When the kids grow up they continue to compete. They jump from trees, from bridges... it gets worse, but it's no drama, it's no horror, it's just fun. When will they realize how ridiculous it is? Well, this is a fun movie, short, just like 30 minutes or so, and I love it, absolutely love it. One of my favorites of the more unknown Astrid Lindgren books made into film.
