The title of this Swedish comedy, which translates as 65, 66 and I, refers to the serial numbers assigned to three militiamen. One of the three is a reluctant impostor, a wealthy businessman who dons a military uniform when his own clothes are stolen. The only person who knows his true identity is a young lieutenant, and he's not about to talk lest he jeopardize his previously forbidden romance with the businessman's daughter. Forced to take orders rather than give them for the first time in his life, our middle-aged hero finds that he's actually happier as a lowly private than as a captain of industry. The humor level in 65, 66 Och Yag is as broad as the businessman's behind, and just as funny.
