Description by Filmoteka Muzeum

To manifest his strategy of dissolving art in daily life, Rzepecki presents here several scenes from the life of his family. At the beginning, all of its members are sleeping in one bed (the wife and the kids), which comes as a bitter commentary on the miserable housing situation in Poland. Then subsequent scenes follow from the life of the Rzepeckis’, equally absurd in character. Each of them is introduced by a title in a different language. At the end of the day, the members of the family get back to their bed. Images of the family life serve here to inspire a more general reflection on the lifestyle of the Poles at the time of political transition.
