Lotta Leaves Home (1993) 8

Sweden | 1993 | 83 min.

Five-year-old Lotta is stubborn as a goat, her father says. This morning she refuses to put on that nasty, itchy sweater. Mummy is stupid and Lotta is furious. Quietly she cuts a big hole in her sweater. Then she moves in with Aunt Berg. Of course Lotta is right when she claims: ''I know a lot of things. Well, actually I know everything.'' She will never again have to put on that nasty sweater. An independent sequel to A Clever Little Girl Like Lotta, based on a novel by Astrid Lindgren.
