Language: No dialogue
Synopsis

A short film named after a Rolling Stones’ song shows improvised performances, during which the members of the Slovenian art collective OHO make drawings on a concrete wall erected in the middle of a field, spontaneously running, dancing and finally putting on a cardboard box with only their legs sticking out. The film promotes OHO’s artistic and philosophical approach to the so-called reism, i.e. a philosophy in which objects are viewed as equal to human beings and not only recognised for their utilitarian value.
