A Bedfull of Foreigners


Dave Freeman

Directed by: Mike Russell

5th - 9th October 1982

Stanley and Brenda are on a motoring trip when they take a room in a French hotel close to the German border on the eve of a local festival. Less than an hour after checking in, double bookings and mistaken identities cause chaos, resulting in Stanley lowering an attractive girl (Helga), stark naked from the bedroom window whilst the room’s radiator is suspended from the ceiling by a rope. The arrival of Claude, (the attractive girl’s husband) together with his sexy girlfriend Simone adds to the madness and mayhem. By the second hour almost everyone is in the wrong bed with the wrong partner, while nuns and monks rush in and out. Seduction and confrontation are rampant in this hilarious farce
