Storyline

Hans Høy (Dirch Passer) and his beautiful, temperamental but spoiled young wife Susanne (Helle Virkner) have already disagreements in their 3 month old marriage, so she moves home to her mother. This creates a major problem for Hans because his director and uncle Bill is arriving the same day in Copenhagen from New York. Hans is afraid that uncle Bill will fire him, when he learns that his wife left him. Uncle Bill is old school and has always told his nephew that - if you cannot control your wife then you cannot control a business company either. Hans persuades his unwilling assistant Johnny (Ove Sprogø) into acting as his wife and now a lot of amusing controversies evolve. It isn't getting easier when later love hits everyone. Danish comedy. Written by Carl W Gade
