Kirsten Stenbæk, Denmark, 1994

88 min.DK/Feature

A comedy of errors, erotic and otherwise. Max, a high-school teacher and lover of films and females, is happy with his bachelor life in his house with its mixed bag of looney lodgers. One day, he takes in a new and different one: Rikke, a striking handsome woman cop. Afraid of making his usual bold moves, he gets desperate when he sees how easily some of his lodger friends have met this arresting challenge.
