Honest. It's just so honest.
I love this movie. I mean, Kajan Hjelm's optimistic hero with the unbeatable "Söder-accent", it's all just so honest! The whole movie is honest. The character "Skutpelle" is so much a John Botvid-role it can be. Now, this movie is not at all up-to-date, and no one can possibly identify him- or herself with any of the characters, but there's no need for that! You just lay back and make yourself comfortable, and enjoy the love story of Kajan and Ankan, John Botvid's silly voice, the singing and sailing, the long and adventurous journey from Stockholm to Strängnäs. This is Kajan Hjelm's biggest role in his way to short career, I don't know what happened to him. Maybe he just wasn't a good adult-actor. But still the greatest Swedish child-actor of the forties, there's simply no doubt about it!
