defies gravity
29 September 2002 | by the_oakSee all my reviews

This movie was pretty good. Astrid Lindgrens book about this rotary fellow who lives on top of the city roof in his own small town house is legendary, and the movie is a well worked adaptation. I enjoyed most the caracter Lillebror (little brother) who is absolutely 100% lovable, and then comes Karlson, who has this propella on his back. What kind of fuel he employes to drive it is unknown, probably some kind of cold fusion or maybe he taps into zero point energy? He also has a button on his stomach to turn the propella on and off. He must be an android. And he eats only junk food. Great stuff.
