The camera is invading an over-stuffed apartment, floating through an almost surreal material world. There is a presence of the real tenant, supposedly an old man, who we don’t get to see. Instead, a younger man in search of a place to rest is wandering about.The rooms reveal the standstill of a lonley person, who has separated himself from life and the outside world by pileing up consumer objects. A glance out of the window shows a formerly fancy boulevard in Brussels, ruled today by Moroccan traders and African immigrants.
