Storyline

Lillebror, a mischievous and quick-witted boy, has just moved out of town and not made any new friends yet. One day he discovers a twig - Knerten - in a pile of firewood, and this becomes his imaginary friend. When Lillebror's mother gets a job in a general store and his father is out traveling as an underwear salesman, Lillebror has to manage on his own most of the day. With Knerten in hand, he encounters a new everyday rural life filled with colorful characters and challenges. But can a pine twig be a real friend - and can the family afford to stay in the run-down house? Written by NFI

Cute movie!
27 August 2011 | by sjomanSee all my reviews

A great family film. Now I have actually seen this alone, although I am an adult (a little embarrassing to admit) and I actually enjoyed this film. I grew up with 'Knerten', and to see it become this film is simply funny. Lillebror is played by a beautiful boy and Åsleik makes a wonderful role as Knerten's voice.

It is a film that you can take your children too, without feeling that you are bored to death. Comments and scenes in between makes you smile.

For children i believe this is exciting and fun, and for adults (at least if you have read the books) may not be quite as exciting, but charming and fun! With the exception of the two girls, which annoyed me he-he, I can not handle kids like that ... But it makes a bit of the history, I believe!

All-in-all, a feel-good movie, which you can see with the kids without being afraid you will fall asleep!
