Film description

The voiceover calls this a story about nothing, about nothing which you have not already seen on Sundays or on an everyday basis. A relationship between a bus driver and usherette provide pretext to film amusing situations experienced daily by public transport passengers. People get on and off the bus all day long (the director appears as a napping passenger), while the voiceover warmly and sardonically comments on the characteristically Varsovian cityscapes. Replete with brilliant play on words and associations, all further enhanced by the creative musical score, this artistic experiment remains an undated pleasure to watch.
