Ronya lives happily in her father's castle until she comes across a new playmate, Birk, in the nearby dark forest. The two explore the wilderness, braving dangerous Witchbirds and Rump-Gnomes. But when their families find out Birk and Ronja have been playing together, they forbid them to see each other again. Indeed, their fathers are competing robber chieftains and bitter enemies. Now the two spunky children must try to tear down the barriers that have kept their families apart for so long.
I had nothing to do yesterday and for some reason I felt like watching Ronja Rövardotter. (I reason can be that it's spring.) It was pretty long time ago I saw it, but I remebered that I liked it like everyone else that hve seen it. So I started watching and it was even better that I remebered it. It' such a beautiful movie. The caracters, the nature and the music. Everything is perfect! I really like how strong Ronja and Lovis are. Lovis especially, when she's ordering the robbers to get out. And of course Ronja is the same way and I like the way she moves out because of what Mattis has done. She does what she like. Then the nature is beautiful and the music to that. I cry alot in this movie and most of the time it is because it's so beautiful. Also I get sad when the movie is over. I just want to go out side in to this big forest. =) It also makes me long for the summer. I'm so happy that it is such film as Ronja. Thanks to Astrid Lindgren! And also thanks to Tage Danielsson and everyone else who made this movie!

Gosh, what a refreshing movie!!!We live in a time that some countries forbid children to sit on Santa's lap, because of what they consider 'proper conduct'. This movie is in so many ways the opposite: unspoilt, free, warm and caring.Children as the adolescent main characters, with adults mainly behaving like small children. This movie is about fun, adventure and values in live, and is family entertainment at its best!!! Cudo's and many mad props to those who created it. And I'm not even starting about Peter Jackson's the Lord of the Rings (so many years later) or those funny creatures that question everything.... Go see it!!!!!! (why is there still no DVD?)

I can't think of a movie based upon a book or novel by Astrid Lindgren that is bad. Ok, SOME movies are pretty silly... But there's NO ONE that I don't like.In my opinion "Ronja, the robber's daughter" is one of the greatest Swedish movies ever. I enjoyed it the first time I saw it and I still do.(many years later...) As a child, I always wanted to BE like Ronja; free, independent and with a whole forest to play in.The music and songs are so right and always makes me wanna sing along.The characters are unforgettable; Old Skalle-Per, Ronja's caring mother Lovis and her macho-father Mattis.The best part is when Ronja and Birk moves out into the forest, but nothing is boring. Anyone who likes nice stories, romance and good acting should see this movie.I give "Ronja Roeverdotter" a big and happy 8+.

Ronja Rövardotter is one of the best films ever made in Sweden and it will always be a classic. If you haven't seen it, then you have really missed something special. So buy, borrow or rent the film and be amazed by Astrid Lindgrens world.
