Harmless fun, 7 July 2007
Author: P.S. Paaskynen from Tornio, Finland

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Den Ståndaktiga Kyrkoherden is a harmless sex-comedy (unless you consider some full frontal nudity in women harmful) that is told in the way of a naughty, tongue-in-cheek folk ballad with a troubadour (minstrel) commenting in rhyme on the events as they unfold.

The prologue shows the burning of a witch (pretty explicit considering this is a comedy) who curses the descendants of her judge and prosecutor while at the stake.

The main story is set in the early 1800s. Sweden is at war with Russia and most men are under arms, leaving their buxom warm blooded women at home yearning for some male company. The descendant of the witch-burning reverend arrives in a small village as the new priest. All women are exited by his arrival, except one, the daughter of the witch from the prologue. She seeks vengeance for her mother and puts a spell on the priest that causes priapism (a continuous erection). In response to this the women of the village see themselves called upon to try and cure the affliction in the best way they know… This is a product of the sixties. At the time it was a huge success in Sweden. Nowadays, the humour seems a bit dated, but teenagers may still giggle at it.

Seeing Cornelis Vreeswijk as the troubadour is a nice extra.
