The 13-year-old Iqbal is a charming, imaginative and fun boy, which, according to his father, is not enough if one is to succeed in the world. But when Iqbal, his little brother Tariq (11 years) and their friend Sille, accidentally blow up their school, his father is the slightest of his problems. The two crooks, Easelman and The Swine, want to get hold of the randomly home brewed explosive and blow up Tivoli to build the biggest parking facility in Scandinavia. To blackmail the kids for the recipe the two crooks kidnap the adorable little brother Dindua (6 years). The hunt to free Dindua and save Tivoli starts - and this requires cooperation, courage and a lot of imaginative ideas, which Iqbal is an expert in delivering.

Great Danish kids movie
5 January 2016 | by osj2507See all my reviews

You have to have read the books, or just some of them with your kids for this film to be something, this is not an introduction of Iqbal and his family and friends, we jump right into one of the stories from the books and it works out quite well, but only if you know something about Iqbal and the rest of the crew in my opinion.

Me and the kids were entertained and we had been looking forward to seeing Iqbal and the others for quite some time, we have been reading the books ever since the first ones came out and it is nice to see the author in the film along side all the characters. They were not all what we had expected, and not all how I imitate them when reading aloud for the kids :) but it was a nice transformation to the big screen.
