Set in the late fifties in Denmark the poor junk yard assistant Harry inherits some money. He decides to use the money to hire a butler. The butler isn't too keen on the job at first, but he takes it because there aren't that many butler-jobs around at the moment. In the beginning both of them don't know what to expect of the other, but find a way to satisfy both of them. The people in the neighborhood at first make jokes about Harry and his butler, but in the end they start to accept him when he starts to help them. Written by

When Harry (Oswald Helmuth), a sweeet but less than affluent man just wins the lottery he doesn't spend the money on getting away from the junkyard where he lives.. nooh, he decide to hire a genuine butler. The butler (Ebbe Rode) hates the place at first and have great difficulties but eventually recognisces Harry's wonderful humanity. A Great danish film, and one everyone ought to see. This is what humanity's about. I particularly love the scene where Harry's watching TV (though a TV-shop window, he can't afford a TV), and the butler is holding the umbrella over his head. A great movie by any standards!
