This avant-garde film by Eric de Kuyper is not meant to have a conventional, or even an unconventional plot although it is ostensibly about a group of six men in formal attire in an English manor house, trying to prolong a party that has clearly ended. The men speak to each other in whatever language seems to suit the mood: English, Dutch, French, German, or Italian. They linger and lounge over discussions on women and are connected to a remote outside world by the telephone but not much else. Their general air of ennui and malaise has some intermissions -- as when a woman named Daisy pops in on them -- though the camera still remains static for long periods, and silences can stretch on and on, both techniques conveying the existential life of six men going nowhere.
