Yet another classic from Ivo Caprino!
"Den Standhaftige tinnsoldat" is yet another of Ivo Caprino`s classic short-films, but this one is different from the others. Most of his other films are based on Norwegian fairytales, but this one is based on a fairytale written by H. C. Andersen, who was a famous Danish writer. "Den Standhaftige Tinnsoldat" proves to be in the same league as "Gutten som kappåt med trollet", "Den Sjuende Far i Huset" and "Askeladdens Gode Hjelpere". The movie is about the adventures of a tin soldier with one leg, and it follows the fairytale very closely, which is a nice thing. 9/10
