The project began after director Pernille Fischer Christensen read a newspaper article about the youth of Astrid Lindgren, where she became a young mother and her baby was born in Copenhagen, Denmark. See more »
Although I do not really know neither Astrid Lindgren nor her characters Pippi Longstocking, Karlsson-on-the-Roof, ... I loved the film which is based on the exceptional performance of the lead actress Alba August as well as an extremely neat photography. We might think that this film is jointly sponsored by the tourist offices and the ministries of culture of both Sweden and Denmark.
This biopic traces the life of Astrid during a small decade, in the 20s. We discover first of all a talented, mischievous and dreamy teen, then a young, fighting and resilient woman. Although the intended public of the books is very young, that of the film excludes, in my humble opinion, the children. Instructive and moving!
