That Boy Emil Emil & Ida i Lönneberga

Alicja Björk, Lasse Persson, Per Ahlin / Sweden / 2013 / 63 min / live dubbing / 4+

Sweet little Emil keeps getting into mischief and receiving his favourite punishment – being sent to the woodshed where he sits quietly and carves his wood figures. A new adaptation of Astrid Lindgren’s beloved tales, based on the book’s original illustrations.


‘E-e-emil!’ shouts father across the small farm in Katthult, his toe caught horribly painfully in a rat trap, his hands full of sticky flypaper and his hair full of dough. Here we go again: the boy is up to his old tricks and will have to be banished to the woodshed. Except that Emil doesn’t see this as punishment – on the contrary: he locks the door from inside so that he can continue undisturbed to carve another of his wooden figures, of which he has a whole collection. His little sister Ida also wants to sit inside the shed, but she’s too well-behaved. And it’s not that easy to get up to Emil’s kind of mischief. All this bright boy really wants to do is solve problems – something he goes about with his own refreshing logic. Eventually Ida manages to get on equal footing with her brother by smashing a load of eggs!

“Some illustrators are completely associated with the stories of Astrid Lindgren, and when it comes to Emil and his world, Björn Berg has created some unforgettable characters. Not only the residents of Katthult farm in Lönneberga, but several others in the parish: Krösa-Maja, the Krakstorp farmer, the Dean and his wife, and many more.” (Per Ahlin)
