A nice family man and a pillar of a small Danish community (Per Buckhøj) creates quite a stir when he is caught smuggling a "dirty" book into the country after a trip to Paris. The book winds up circulating among the indignant citizenry, some of whom (and a few less secretly than others) suddenly obtain a new outlook on life in general and their sex-lives in particular. Tame by modern standards but hailed as a pungent satire on hypocrisy and Christian morality in it's day, Adam Og Eva marked the second film of Erik Balling who later reached legendary status as the creator of the Olsen Banden series of heist comedies.
