Having met Astrid Lindgren when I was a child in Zurich, which she visited at the time, I was very much moved by watching this film in the cinema not far away from where I met her in Zurich in the late 80s. I also grew up reading her stories are seeing the films that she created of the stories. This movie is very dramatic and very nice as well, however it moves you to tears to see the story and the pain that she went through in her younger years.
I can highly recommend this movie and I think anyone who has read her books and seen the films should see this film as well.
