Olof lives alone on his family's farm after the death of his mother. Unable to read and write, he is dependent on his younger friend, Erik, who helps him in the afternoons. Once a sailor, Erik brags of having known hundreds of women. Out of the blue, Olof advertises in the local paper for a young lady housekeeper, and Ellen, a middle-class city woman, arrives to take over the house and, as the summer goes on, Olof's heart and Erik's desire as well.Written by

The three leading actors all perform well but Rolf Lassgård makes an outstanding performance of the illiterate farmer who has never had a woman. Seeing this film in wintertime makes you long for a summer in the countryside. The photography is also of very high quality.
