HUGO AND JOSEPHINE is a subtitled Swedish film, from 1967, about a young girl who meets a boy and has a series of adventures with him.

Imitable Behaviour

In one scene, Josephine disobeys her mother's warning and walks over rocks and into a stream. She is swiftly lifted out of the stream and placed on dry land by a man. In another scene, the children run through woods whilst elk hunters fire rifles at their unseen prey. There is also a scene in which children walk through a building site and ride in the scoop of a mechanical digger. In other scenes, the children stand or run on rooftops, although one of these scenes is a dream. There are also scenes in which a boy uses a knife to whittle wood. The potentially dangerous activity in some scenes is counterbalanced by adult warnings or intervention, whilst in other cases the dangers are apparent and likely to be obvious to older children.

Violence

In one scene, a young girl is repeatedly slapped across the face by a boy.

The film contains a scene in which the children encounter two men in an abandoned factory. However, the men do not intend to harm them and the children are not scared by the men. There is also infrequent use of very mild bad language ('God').
