In ANYTHING FOR THE LADIES, the clash between the modern and traditional is depicted through Ulf Hallén, an aging clothing merchant.

An outspoken and rude, but sincere and well-meaning man who refuses to adapt to the changes around him. A precise, bittersweet and comical status report from a new time that has long since passed.
