1974,directed by Olle Hellbom, starring Lars Soederdahl, Mats Wikstroem, 96 min. After the book by Astrid Lindgren
Eight year old Lillebror is often by himself and feels lonely.
That’s why he wants nothing more than a dog as a companion. Instead he finds a small, portly, overly confident man that lives on the roof, right next to the chimney: Karlsson-on-the-Roof.
Karlsson knows how to fly. Not with a plane or a helicopter, like other people, but all by himself with a propeller on his back.
And he’s the world’s best at practically everything, including getting Lillebror in trouble…
A true Lindgren classic and one of the most memorable adaptations of her work.
