Summary

A colour abstract film instantly turns into a commercial promoting Saponia soap.

Synopsis

A whirl of coloured bubbles eventually makes the storks reveal its source - the turpentine soap Saponia. The voice-over talks about the qualities of the refined soap, and several young storks fly off to distribute it throughout Czechoslovakia. The conclusion then lists the best qualities of this soap.

Note

Filming the commercial employed the Gasparcolor system. Some abstract parts of the film are very similar to passages of the film entitled Fantaisie érotique (1936, IRE-Film); they are, however, not identical
