Autumn has brought unexpected changes and surprises to the wonderful Andersson family. Fourth grader Sune’s father, mother, older sister and little brother become his support team when a new classmate – who is better than Sune at everything – makes school life difficult. To top it all off, the new classmate is also called Sune!
A lively and humour-filled story about awkward situations and overcoming bitterness and fear, as well as about the power of sincerity as experienced by both children and adults alike. The film is based on a popular Swedish children’s book series by Anders Jacobsson and Sören Olsson, which director Jon Holmberg grew up reading. The authors have now developed Sune further so his character evolves with the times.
Foreword by the programme curator: There seems to be no limit to the imagination of a 4th-grader – to put it on the screen, special effects are essential.
