After Serner's girl friend throws him out, old school pal Taube takes in his forlorn, would-be writer chum. At first Taube's wife, Ekmanner, resents the strange man's presence and habits (he likes to read holding a piece of cat fur to his cheek). But gradually she takes a liking to the

eccentric and begs him to stay. Serner brings over Granhagen, an obnoxious typing teacher, and the couple gradually take over the small apartment. Taube and Ekmanner plot to get rid of her by having Ekmanner attempt to falsely seduce Serner. The plan works, but too well, as Ekmanner realizes she

loves Serner. The two make frenzied love as the cuckold Taube throws on his friend's old undershirt and goes to sleep in the guest room. This is a sweet film with many moments of genuine whimsy. The dialog is crisp and realistic, giving the film a nice edge. Unfortunately, the direction doesn't

quite match the plot's eccentricities, resulting in an "almost but not quite" comic menage a trois.
