A great Danish kids film that adults can really enjoy
6 October 2013 | by diane_hanseningramSee all my reviews

This is my all-time favourite Danish kids' film. Lots of black humour, great set locations and the time just flies by...a rare treat for grown ups forced into watching the usual dire kids drivel! Sidse Babett has fantastic comic talent and Ole Thestrup is in his element as the oddball undertaker. Fairly dark - yikes, Shaggy! - and, yes, a wee bit spooky but with lots of lighter moments and a nice touch of romance. Great for all kids between 9 and 99. A great film to curl up with in winter/Halloween/Xmas. Have seen it several times over and it just gets better - a classic :) Now I just need to track down a version with English subtitles so that I can share it with my Scottish family...
