Plot

The naughty boy Nils, who delights in torturing animals, is bewitched by a tomte. Now shrunken to a small size and able to talk to animals, he flies across Lapland on the backs of wild geese. During these dangerous travels he does many noble deeds, and, at the same time, searches for the tomte who would take the spell away.

Interesting facts

  • For strengthening of an image artists gave to the leader of a horde of rats of line (a bang on the head) and manners of behavior of Adolf Hitler (it is remarkable that the actor Sergey Martinson sounding the Rat (in credits is absent) the first on the Soviet screen embodied Hitler in the movie "New Adventures of Shveyk").
  • At the episode occurring in "the night city" in Selma Lagerlöf's book the exact scene of action — the city of Karlskrona is specified. The Bronze King and the Wooden Boatswain (it Rozenbom) has real prototypes — a monument to the king Charles XI of Sweden and a wooden statue - "moneybox" at a vegetable marrow.
  • Video

    In the early nineties the animated film is released on videotapes by the film association "Krupnyy Plan", later to the middle of the 1990th — in the collection "The Best Soviet Animated Films" of Studio PRO Video, in the mid-nineties — in the collection of animated films of a film studio "Soyuzmultfilm" a videostudio "Soyuz", since 1996 was reissued by the same studio.
