Note / The residents of a nursing home often have failing memories. In order to exercise their memory, the recreation room has a wide-screen monitor on which contemporary and old-fashioned objects pass by for three quarters of an hour. Van Warmerdam’s idea is that the residents should try to remember which objects they saw in her film.
