The bright-eyed Lindstrom stars as a six-year-old Swede living in a small village in the 1930s, struggling with the limits of his expansive imagination. Raised by loving parents, Lindstrom leaves the safety of the real world and retreats into an abominable fantasy life from which no one

can protect him. One young woman tantalizes and torments the child by climbing naked into a tree in the dead of winter and names Lindstrom as the devil, while a murderer's son, Stellan Skarsgard, later tells the boy tales of his father. In what is practically a nonnarrative structure, AKE AND HIS

WORLD succeeds chiefly on the talents of young Lindstrom, whose endearing childhood innocence permeates the screen. Originally released in 1984, the picture received film festival release in 1985.
