SYNOPSIS

A dream of a woman is shown in long static shots, which are fast-forwarded and thus emphasize the repetitive movements of browsing through home decorating magazines. The fast forwarded shots don't have a humorous effect but a rather neurotic one. The image is clear and clean. Immaculateness is even more stressed by the white outfit and furniture. Camera doesn't capture the woman's head making her body look like only a torso. Music by Alexi Murdoch titled Home is light and easy, but slowly a sublime massage appears over the image quoting a Slovene architect France Ivanšek, saying: "Magazine's suggestions promise us an almost perfect happiness if we imitate famous people."
