By means of an artful, non-stop comedy of the absurd, director Alexander Rekhviashvili sends up, way up, some of the more common human foibles. Alexei (Mirab Ninidze) may live in a chaotic apartment or rent-a-room situation, but he is serious about trying to find a job and making something of himself. The trouble is that the people who impinge the most on his life only frustrate his good intentions. His professors are a weird lot whose motors, when running, are always on idle and never in gear. Instead of complying with Alexei's request to help him find a job, they expertly pass the buck. Other odd characters wander in and out of Alexei's apartment, and in the end, all their ennui and humorous eccentricities have a decided effect on him.
