Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
The director of this film, Vilgot Sjoman, is better-known for his film I Am Curious, Yellow. Here he explores the situations arising from the efforts of a naive, or perhaps only rather stupid, young man as he attempts to cope with notions of love, honor and responsibility. These notions are thrust upon him in the form of a pregnant woman living on his houseboat with him. Though he is not the father, he gallantly offers to marry her. She refuses but lets him become involved with her in a left-wing protest effort, which he doesn't understand.
