| Jovial. Comfortable. Much food.
Most Edvard Persson-fans agrees that "Kalle på Spången" is his best movie. And he is good in it, it's just too bad that no one else is. Maybe that's what happens when you try to make a movie that's completely made out of one particular actor's personal charm. The other actors are quite unknown, Mim Persson, the woman who plays Stina is mostly known for being Edvard's wife. There are four songs in the movie, of which three became really famous; "Jag har bott vid en landsväg," "Kalle på Spången" and "Lite grann från ovan." Edvard's character is a most jovial and sympathetic man, who pays great tribute to food, drink, the good old times and his home region. Of course is he the "hero" that manages to work everything out. He has all the good lines and gets to sing all the songs. That's typical for Edvard Persson, who used to say when he was entering the stage: "Ok, let's put all the light at me."

The inn Spången, where almost everything takes place, is a real inn in the southern regions of Sweden.
