Without dialogue, a man in a suit and a woman with an open blouse (Zwartjes and his wife) walk across an empty living room. Their faces pale, their expressions solemn. The camera with a wide-angle lens revolves around them, flowing, turning and gliding, resulting in a confusing, oppressive lack of orientation, deepened by an unreal, whining soundscape.A film from the Home Sweet Home series. Honourable mention Staatsprijs voor de Filmkunst and in 2007 admitted to the "Canon van de Nederlandse Film", a list of the most important Dutch films.
