In the Basement

The film is about people and their obsessions. The film is about basements and what people do in them in their free time. The film is about brass-band music and opera arias, expensive furniture and cheap men’s jokes, sexuality and sadism, fitness and fascism, whips and dolls, snakes and guns, love and the longing for love.
