This experimental Lithuanian-German production offers a challenge for those not familiar with the culture. It is told without a clear narrative and contains no dialog. Set in the country's capital, Vilnius, in a run-down apartment. Mostly the film is a highly-symbolic chronicle of daily life there. At one point someone holds a party featuring music, dancing, plenty of cigarette puffing, and a smidgen of sex. According to filmmaker/writer/star Sarunas Bartas, he deliberately utilized off-beat narrative structures to symbolize the links between Lithuania's past and present, links, like the long hallways of an apartment block, that offer many possibilities behind each door.
