When Harry (Oswald Helmuth), a sweeet but less than affluent man just wins the lottery he doesn't spend the money on getting away from the junkyard where he lives.. nooh, he decide to hire a genuine butler. The butler (Ebbe Rode) hates the place at first and have great difficulties but eventually recognisces Harry's wonderful humanity. A Great danish film, and one everyone ought to see. This is what humanity's about. I particularly love the scene where Harry's watching TV (though a TV-shop window, he can't afford a TV), and the butler is holding the umbrella over his head. A great movie by any standards!
