Fun for a while
24 July 1999 | by MattiasSee all my reviews

This is yet another of those Swedish comedies from the 1930s or 1940s who deal with mistaken identities. Sickan Carlsson and the other principal players made a lot of these. This is fun while it last, although everybody seem to be typecast.
