Synopsis

In the style of old grotesque, without dialogues, with only stylized subtitles between the frames, the film shows a newly-married couple entering their new flat. After a while, their relatives begin to rush in, bringing various, mostly bulky objects as wedding gifts, thus turning the little flat into a warehouse of incredible junk. The members of the family - soon joined by two children - can barely work their way through the stuffed animals, spinning wheels and even a phone booth. Then there is an explosion and the flat is, all of a sudden, furnished comfortably and orderly. The closing title encourages the viewers not to be afraid to get rid of things of poor taste.
