Olof lives alone on his family's farm after the death of his mother. Unable to read and write, he is dependent on his younger friend, Erik, who helps him in the afternoons. Once a sailor, Erik brags of having known hundreds of women. Out of the blue, Olof advertises in the local paper for a young lady housekeeper, and Ellen, a middle-class city woman, arrives to take over the house and, as the summer goes on, Olof's heart and Erik's desire as well.

This WONDERFUL, beautiful, lovely film have been my all-time favorite movie ever sense the first time I saw it a couple of years ago.
Olof is a lonely farmer somewhere in Sweden who have been living alone ever since his parents died. In secret he puts in an ad in the paper where he asks for a housekeeper but of course we all understand that what he really wants is a woman to love. One day Ellen shows up... A mysterious, beautiful woman who before summer is over have stolen Olofs heart. ... And seriously annoyed his best friend.
This is truly a great movie! The pictures are fantastic and shows of the very best of hot, Swedish summers and sweet love between two very different people.
