PETTSON AND FINDUS – A LITTLE NUISANCE, A GREAT FRIENDSHIP tells a funny and deeply touching story of love, friendship, trust and the feeling of belonging.
Old man Pettson lives in a small, red house, spending his time chopping wood, doing odd jobs, working on his inventions, fishing and taking care of his chickens. It seems he has everything he needs in life. However, sometimes Pettson feels lonely. One day his neighbour, Beda Andersson, who takes care of everything warmheartedly, gives him a small tomcat, so the old man has a bit of company. Pettson names him Findus and raises him lovingly. His happiness is perfect when the small cat begins to speak: it is the start of a wonderful, apparently inseparable friendship.
Based on the Swedish author Sven Nordqvist’s internationally loved children’s books of the same name (translated into more than thirty languages already), the film tells the story of the grumpy loner, Pettson, and his friend, the small, speaking cat, Findus, who, together, experience a series of adventures and learn what it means to have friends.
