Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
The subtitle of this Swedish comedy is "Tage Danielsson's Divine Comedy." It recounts the trials of a man named Dante Alighieri (Gosta Ekman) as he attempts to quit smoking. He is worried about backsliding, so he hires a pair of private detectives to keep him from smoking even a single cigarette. They follow him around from Sweden to France and back again. He also has an uncle who thinks it is funny to offer him cigars and cigarettes. Indeed, he even hires Dante's private eyes away from him and instructs them to get him smoking again.
