The patriarch of a seemingly nameless family is a factory owner whose workers transform eggs into specialized tools for scratching certain unreachable human itches. The Father rules both his business and his family with an iron fist. So when The Son rebels against him, it comes as no surprise that The Father doesn't take it very well.
Hasse got serious without his sidekick. Even though this movie has a lot of humour, Hasse is waxing serious in it, and this is what makes it memorable. And the acting - from the cruel Max to the genial Gösta, these are performances which will etch themselves in your mind. Hasse wants to bring us back to nature. He wants us to remember what we've forgot. He was a great comedian with Tage, and a great author too, and here he shows what he can do with film.
