Le 16e film de l’ONF à être nommé aux Oscars®

Ce premier film d'Arthur Lipsett observe l'envers de la vie courante et met au jour des anxiétés que nous tentons d'oublier. À une foule d'images en apparence familières se superposent des fragments de discours saisis au passage et une voix qui répète en boucle : "very nice, very nice".
