An unusual visit to a large, empty apartment. Is it empty or not? Maybe a family has lived there or is going to live there…Maybe a young girl is going to escape from there…Maybe some of the old-timers who lived there have never left.
Agnès Varda’s experimental mid-80s short swings from minutiae to magical realism, unfolding as a stunning, anachronistic, and non-linear tour through a house and its previous inhabitants. Expect a surrealistic parody of domesticity with an extraordinary ensemble cast. If walls could talk indeed.
