Beautiful film
5 February 2019 | by marthavdg-69396See all my reviews

I totally enjoyed this film. I was a child in Germany when I read Astrid's books, and watching the movie I could see so many similarities between her growing up at the that in Sweden and Germany. The actress portraying Astrid is superb. I just wonder how they got a little boy playing the part of her son. I don't often cry in movies, but, being a mother, I couldn't help but being choked by tears, especially when she had to leave her newborn with a substitute mother.
