Teenage lovers Jeremiah (Jeremiah Hall) and Denelle (Denelle Kjellman)
spend their days and nights with uncontrolled drug consumption - and with
meticulously and perpetually cleaning their house. It's unclear why these
teens feel compelled to clean their house - it's not as if they show any
real affection towards it - or why the house needs cleaning in the first
place, and the work comes across as utterly monotonous ... but their
cleaning creates a kind of harmony between the two of them, a kind of
silent understanding or whatever you want to call it. And judging by the
professionalism they bring to their cleaning, they must have been at it
for quite some time.
Then one day, out of the blue Jeremiah's brother
shows up, starts nagging about this and that, and effectively destroys the
harmony our kids have had. It doesn't long before Denelle decides they
have to kill him, just because he's a pain in the ass, because he has
invaded their world. Jeremiah is hesitant, after all it's his brother they
are talking about - but then again the house with all its cleaning duties
really is their world ...

An enjoyable weird no
budget film that takes a very unique way to tell its story, at first
showing its protagonists engaged in the most monotonour of actions -
cleaning a house -, and even their dialogue (mainly cleaning-related)
couldn't be less interesting. But while that sounds more than boring, on
film it creates a world all of its own, an atmosphere-rich enviroment -
and that non-actors Denelle Kljellman and Jeremiah Hall are absolutely up
to their tasks doesn't hurt one bit, either. And when finally disaster
strikes, it does its bit to unexpectedly reveal the macabre humour of the
Pretty cool, actually.
