The main character, the married Robert (Tommy Johnson) meets a nurse, Fanny (Maria Selbing) when he is at the hospital one Monday to see his dying father (Ingvar Kjellson). The father who is a bitter man thinks Robert is a lazy no-good son that nerver has done any good out of what he had. Robert keeps seeing his father on Mondays taking time off from work, also to get to see Fanny. This puts strain on his relations to his boss. Fanny and Robert starts a relationship although Robert is married to Gudrun (Agneta Ekmanner). When it finally reveals that Robert is married, Fanny breaks up.

This is a devastating blow to Robert. In his desperate, desolate mind he thrashes the little cabin by the sea where they used to meet on Mondays.

An excellent warm and sensitive film about a man who experiences a life crisis. I felt sympathy for the troubled character Robert who in his own head is reacting logical and sane. It is so clear to see that all he really wants is to come close to someone that wants to give him unconditional love and comfort, particularly from his wife and his bitter father, but also (in lack of others) from his newfound lover Fanny. The music in the film (also done by Lars Lennart Forsberg) is breathtaking, a simple tune repeated throughout the whole film but every time with a different musical instrument.

Also beautifully filmed by Lasse Björne that catches Swedish nature and seasons through the year that the movie is set in.
