This popular Swedish musical comedy is a follow-up movie to the blockbuster hit comedy (in Sweden) Macken, and it features the talents of the comedy troupe Galenskaparna/After Shave, which performs in much the same zany fashion as the British Monty Python ensemble. It is based on a wildly popular staged musical comedy featuring the same performers. The story concerns a railway stationmaster in a small Swedish town, who, when he is informed by the powers-that-be that they will be closing the station down, retaliates by kidnapping the bureaucrats and obstinately claiming that the absence of trains at his station is simply due to their being tardy. It's difficult to see how anyone could genuinely fall for this ruse, but anyone familiar with the Python's famous "Dead Parrot" skit or their equally hilarious "Cheese Shop" skit can appreciate how humorous this set-up might be.
