Four female office workers share a flat and the experience of being self-sufficient in a man’s world.

This incandescent comedy, starring the legendary Swedish star Tora Teje, is remarkably modern in its outlook and technique. Director Per Lindberg includes an astonishing shot of endless rows of typists in a huge office space that predates similar, more famous, scenes in King Vidor’s The Crowd and Billy Wilder’s The Apartment by years.

Restored by Swedish Film Institute.
