A classic Norwegian fairy tale done with the unique puppet style of Ivo Caprino. Charming as all his shorts but patience is tested with a long introduction in live-footage where the fairy-tale collector meet a family and is introduced to the story.
This is so vintage, it makes me wanna travel back in time. I just absolutely love this kind of animation style: it's so thought through - the dolls, the naive plots, the childish aspects. A very healthy children entertainment.
