Charles and Peter have passed their law degree and are looking forward to woo a few girls in the country. For that, they need to persuade their fellow student Ditlev to play Charles' aunt from Brazil, until Charles' real aunt turns up.
On a train in 1930 Denmark, the emergency brake is pulled and the train stops near a station rumored to be haunted after midnight of the 13th. While the passengers wait in the station, strange, scary and confusing things happen.
A single male vet looks after different animals on an old farm he shares with a doctor/friend. By accident he ends up looking after a human girl for a while, too. Will the experience change his attitude to not wanting wife and kids?
A bus driver driving a really old bus has to battle with a new accountant who wants to buy a newer model, different ticket system and new regulations. They decided to fire the stubborn bus driver, but this is something not everyone like.
This bland comedy set in a prison serves only as a footnote to the careers of a couple of Denmark´s greatest farceurs. This was the last film of both Jørgen Ryg and Dirch Passer. They´re both OK here, nothing great, a couple of giggles here and there, but a mostly forgettable fare. Dirch passed away 54 years old in 1980 (dressed in a clown suit) after a massive heart attack on the stage, which was where he always had felt at home and comfortable. Jørgen Ryg died the following year and Denmark was deprived of two of its most gifted performers, whose comedic talents were exploited and squandered in far too many mediocre and downright awful films by money-hungry executives. **
