15 min.DK/Short fictionComedy, FarceSilent films

Rittmaster Rebbs receives a lewd letter from an old lover and travels into town “on special commission”. However, in the five years since the rittmaster last saw his Lulu, he also got married. His cunning wife soon suspects mischief, tracks down the rittmaster’s hotel room, and lies in wait in the bed. Meanwhile, the rittmaster’s old comrade-in-arms, who incidentally happens to be “on special commission” as well, checks into the same room. It seems everyone is in for a shock around bedtime!
