A kid and a vagabond
17 November 2011 | by Petey-10See all my reviews

9-year old orphan called Rasmus runs away from the orphanage.He meets a vagabond they call Paradise Oskar.He likes to sing and play his accordion.Oskar makes the world seem like a better place.Rasmus På Luffen (1981) is directed by Olle Hellbom.It's based on the Astrig Lindgren tale from 1956.Allan Edwall is quite fantastic as Oskar.Allan is remembered also from Emil i Lönneberga.Also Emy Storm we can remember from that show as his wife.In this one she plays Principal of Orphanage.And then Maud Hansson was in that show playing Lina.Here she does a minor part.The kid's part is done by Erik Lindgren, and he makes a great Rasmus.Pål Steen plays his pal Gunnar.The crooks, Lin and Liander, are played by Jarl Kulle and Håkan Serner.Tommy Johnson and Lottie Ejebrant play Nilsson i Stensättra and Fru Nilsson.This movie from 30 years back is a movie of good spirit.It makes you smile, even though it doesn't rise to the level of Emil.But there's a lot of good stuff there, like when they face the thieves.It's a joy to the eye to watch the summer nature of Sweden.This works for the whole family.
