Summary

An experimental colour variation.

Synopsis

A nude girl on a couch sips milk from a bottle. The white scene changes as she starts eating a yellow apple with more of them scattered around. The girl puts on blue dress and fastens a green belt. She reads a newspaper and throws various coloured fabrics on her. She plays with bananas; a bottle of orange juice then gives the scene an orange tone. The girl makes phone calls, leans a painting against the couch and puts flowers into a vase; she drinks red wine and smokes. The trumpet she presses to her lips shines gold. The couch is covered and surrounded by lots of coloured things, but then the scene begins to empty. Gone are the fruit, bottles and fabrics. A nude girl lies on white sheets and finally disappears, too.
