IMDb

Synopsis

Set in Sweden in 1959. 12 year old Ingemar lives with his brother and his terminally ill mother. He is sent away to stay with relations for the summer where he meets various odd characters including his uncle, a trapeze artist, a buxom nude model, and a girl named Saga (who tries to pose as a boy in order to be included in their boxing, and eventually becomes Ingemar's friend). The boy develops a simple but profound philosophy: no matter what happens to him, "It could have been worse."

I've seen this movie, dubed into english, it was interesting, especially the part where Ingemar gets his "Little Boy" stuck in the bottle! that scene was very funny to me, my brother did that once when he was little, so this movie brought back funny memories!
