This 1987 live-action film version of an allegorical fantasy by Swedish children's author Astrid Lindgren was co-produced by Swedish, Norwegian, and Soviet filmmakers; shot in Sweden, Scotland, and the USSR; and starred a mixed British/Russian/Swedish cast. Among others, it featured confirmed wizard Christopher Lee and an adolescent Christian "This Isn't a Car" Bale, and was scored by Abba's Benny Andersson. The film appeared as Mio in the Land of Faraway in English (1 | 2 | 3 | 4). In Russian it appeared under the same title as the original novel: Мио мой Мио. While the film was shot in English, it was also dubbed into Swedish, Russian, and several other languages for distribution.
