A weekly show aimed at the education of children. Short movies explain different things of everyday life, (e.g. how cars work, how movies are made etc.), they are followed by a short sequence of animated clips.
Vicky is a viking-boy who lives with his parents Halvar and Ylva in the small village Flake. He is a typical viking boy, but rather fearful. He is also not very strong but smart. One day he sails with the grown up vikings out to the sea and to experience a great and funny adventure.Written by
I have never seen the original cartoon version of Wickie, so I had no idea what to expect when I bought this movie for my 4 year old daughter. From the first time watching it, she loved it. The great thing is, my wife and I loved it too. As other reviewers have said, the plot is not the strongest part of this film. But the cast is excellent, especially Guenther Kaufmann as a deliciously evil and over the top Sven, and the production is beautiful. Perhaps the highest praise a film can earn, my daughter forced my father-in-law, who speaks no German whatsoever and is impatient with things that he doesn't like at the best of times, to watch Wickie. Not only did he not complain, but when we were all called to dinner, he wanted to stay to watch the rest of the film. High praise indeed! I have heard rumors that they're filming a sequel. We sure hope so. My daughter is eager to follow more of Wickie's adventures.
