Storyline

The station-master Fabian Bom is a very meticulous person, and he makes sure that the train leaves exactly - on the second. To him, nothing could be more important than duty, efficiency and punctuality, in fact, his sense of duty is clearly perverted. His beloved Plum-Plum, the major's daughter, is infatuated with army officers. To regain her attention, he joins the army. Bom becomes a soldier who loves the military training, long marches as well as hard labour as punishment. He meets Agnes, who falls madly in love with him. Written by Mattias Thuresson

Very VERY funny old swedish comedy classic in the spirit of Chaplin!!!
30 July 2001 | by (sweden) – See all my reviews

Some scenes in this are genualy funny and Nils Poppe is a very talented comedian.

The very good actor Gunnar Björnstrand is doing a funny part as corporal Berglund who hates Fabian.

Rating: 4+ out of 5
