Storyline

The wholesaler Karl-Alfred Pettersson is somewhat drunk, when he hits a lamppost with his car. The police tell him that this will probably render him 30 days in prison. At the same time a soldier called 67 Blomberg runs away from his military service, followed by two police detectives. Karl-Alfred stops his car at a cabana, puts on a bathing costume, and jumps into the sea. Blomberg flees into the cabana, where he finds Karl-Alfred's clothes. He changes clothes, passes the police detectives in the wholesaler's outfit, and drives away with Karl-Alfred's car. Unable to find his clothes in the cabana, Karl-Alfred dresses himself in Blomberg's clothes. The detectives are convinced that Karl-Alfred is the runaway 67 Blomberg, and take him to the regiment. There he meets his daughter's sweetheart, Lieutenant Tjäder, who doesn't help him, because of his rejection of Tjäder as a potential son-in-law. There is nothing for Karl-Alfred to do, but accepting his new role as soldier 67 Blomberg. ... Written by Maths Jesperson {maths.jesperson1@comhem.se}

Ay tank Ay go home now...
14 October 2003 | by F Gwynplaine MacIntyreSee all my reviews

I recently attended an exhibition of European films from several nations, in various languages. This film grabbed my attention in the programme listing because of its unusual numeric title: in Swedish, '65, 66 and Me'. I assumed that it would be a movie about convicts, or just possibly robots ... at any rate, the characters would have serial numbers. Intrigued, I attended the film.

I was only mildly impressed. It turns out to be a service comedy: rather the Swedish equivalent of 'Buck Privates' or 'Carry On, Sergeant'. Petrus (#65), Pelle (#66) and Karl-Alfred (#67) are all yokels conscripted into the same platoon of the Swedish army. Because they have consecutive serial numbers, they are always together in close formation on parade, they bunk alongside one another, they mess together, and so forth. They become friends, and then start collaborating in practical jokes and rowdy antics.

Most of this allegedly 'army' comedy is actually concerned with the adventures of our lads on a furlough. Fair enough; a lot of American and British comedies with military themes took this same tack. Our three Swedish meatballs take their back pay and go to town on a spree. They latch onto some blonde flickas in cute dirndls. This movie reminds me of 'On the Town': it's similar in mood and subject matter, without being nearly so well-paced nor so disciplined. I also didn't find this comedy to be very funny. Maybe that's down to my difficulties with the Swedish language, but perhaps not: even the slapstick and visual humour didn't quite work for me here. I'll rate this move 3 points out of 10.
