Dust Jacket Condition: new. Instead "Alla vi barn i Bullerbyn" turns out almost completely free of fantasy. With thinly disguised autobiographical narration by lead character Lisa, this story of simple country life recalls simpler times gone by and is a welcome alternative for parents to show today's toddlers accustomed to Manga style entertainment if their attention spans have not already been affected that is.
We follow the group of village children as they stroll through the woods, ride in carts, and even go skinny dipping Swedish censors are not as strict about showing nude children from behind. After visiting Lisa's granddad for the second or third time in a row, the group of friends who's number varies from time to time go for a ride on a horse and wagon and sing a bit of cute and carefree tralalala as opposed to the stuff they were forced to sing in school earlier.
They help somebody working in a field and giggle a lot, even though my Swedish was not good enough to understand the joke. Although obviously none of them comes equipped with supernatural Pipi-strength, their parents don't object to them spending the night in a barn on their own. The girl's lullaby makes all the animals in the area cower and run away, so one of the boys pretends to throw up, ending the song prematurely. Already filmed once before in , I seriously doubt if the earlier version of "Alla vi barn i Bullerbyn" could be any more old fashioned than this one.
Together with the sequel, "Mer om oss barn i Bullerbyn", which was shot at the same time, the complete story was turned into a TV series or could it be the other way around? This may explain why the film is made up out of so many unrelated little stories not to mention the abrupt ending in this first part.
Unfortunately, I doubt if today's children spoiled by non stop violent cartoons will have the patience to sit through this much peacefulness. Looking for some great streaming picks? Check out some of the IMDb editors' favorites movies and shows to round out your Watchlist.

Luckily for me, Ilon Wikland, the illustrator for Springtime in Noisy Village, also illustrated this book. That leaves us with seven Bullerbyn books to worry about. In my book The Children of Noisy Village , these are some of the stories: Walking home from school Fun in school Anna and Lisa shopping for sausage of the best quality, yeast, ginger, sewing needles, etc.
Anna and Lisa forgetting things and the adventure taking a long time Crayfishing Notice how these stories appear to come from three different Bullerbyn books and now you understand why this is a rainbow-colored post.
For the 90 minutes of the film we watch the six children go from one low key episode to another. What makes the film special is how each scene is such a well crafted observation of what kinds of things children wind up doing when left alone to their own devices. Much of the humor is centered around the fact that there are three boys and three girls.
Since they are all under 10 the play is very innocent. But there is nevertheless a lot of gentle teasing that goes back and forth between the sexes.
For those people looking for another fantastic tale like Pippi Longstocking, this may sound boring and trite. For Swedes, however, this is the cinematic equivalent of milk and cookies. I just recently saw this at a Swedish Film festival in a theater filled with young Swedish kids and their moms and a few childless grown-ups as well. The 4 year old girl sitting next to me was clearly entertained and gentle laughter was heard throughout the theater during the entire film.
At the end everyone clapped. It is nice to know that a film so innocent as this one can still generate that kind of response from a modern day audience.Dec 06, · Directed by Lasse Hallström.
