When he proposes marriage, she breaks up with him. She begins dating Doctor Dam at the hospital where she works. He also falls in love with her, so she stops seeing him and decides that no single man will ever completely fulfill her own desires. She has a sexual encounter with a stranger, Eric who she realizes perfectly matches her own ...
An underrated early Danish erotic film. Beside a small masturbation scene and a little nakedness, there isen´t much sex in the film but it works on other levels. It´s beautiful shot in black and white, has a "new wave" kind of editing style, good acting and a lot of humor. Radly Metzger imported this film to USA and earned a LOT og money on it. It started his attention on what could be done economically and artistically with the erotic genre.
