A both funny, intelligent and warm film!
24 November 2001 | by Zaphod BeeblebroxSee all my reviews

"Sagan om Karl Bertil Jonssons julafton" might be the cutest Swedish movie of all times. It's about Karl Bertil, the son of a very rich man, who steals Christmas presents from the rich and give them to the poor.

The movie is both funny, intelligent and warm. And even though it´s quite simple, it really touches my heart.

The film is sent on Swedish television every Christmas Eve, and Christmas would not be the same without it.
