Okay, now it's quiet again.

We have peace at home again.

Go on! Go on!

This way...

Wait, wait, wait.

I can't get the key... ah! Now!


Hold on, we can't get through.

This way!

Just this way!

- Upended!

Yep, thanks!

All right, that's the kitchen.

the music room is straight ahead...

The living room to the left...

That goes into the kitchen,

doesn't it?

Just put it down somewhere.



Wow! Cool wall.

Yeah, we got it like that.

I think it's pretty awesome.

But Jessi considers painting it again.

- Why is that?

Other people have to pay

to get something like that done.

The bathroom is back there, right?

Hey, that wall is awesome!

The whole place is awesome.

All these rooms with high ceilings!

Melli, are you jealous?

- Haha.

A film by JAKOB M. ERWA

Can you hand me my glass of wine?

- There you go.

Thank you for all your help!

- Great flat!

Thank you.

Thank you.

What for?

For everything.


- Yes, good evening, young man!

I know you might have

other habits than we do.

But we can hear your music

very loud in our bedroom.

Oh, is it too loud? I'm sorry.

It's after midnight.

Maybe you consider calling it quits?

My husband has a light sleep.

You know?

Good evening!

- Good evening!

I'm really sorry. Well, um...

We will be quiet now.

Good night!

- Good night!

What was that?


- Hello!

We are your new neighbours

from downstairs.

We want to apologise for

the loud music, once again.

Now that's charming!

That's why you have come here?

I'm Lorenz, hello!

- Hilde Domweber.


- Jessica.

Oh, I have got

something for you as well.

Wait a moment.

A little welcome gift!

Oh, well... Thanks!

Not worth mentioning.

A warm welcome.

Sorry again for yesterday,

that won't happen again.

No hard feelings!

We once were young, too.

In the past, only people of our age

used to live here.

But some couldn't afford the rent

anymore. Others passed away.

The neighbourhood changes.

The house changes. That's how it goes.

Well then! Thanks once again!

If you need anything: ring the bell.


- Thanks!

I'm the inofficial caretaker here,

you know?

Ah! Okay.

Does every new neighbour get this?

Or is it just bad luck?

Come on, let's just put it somewhere

it may accidentally fall down.

Isn't it strange that the neighbours

can look right into our flat?

If they enjoy it.

We've got nothing to hide.

No kidding!

I guess it will be fine once

they found out how boring we are.

If you want we can

put up some curtains tomorrow?

Well, no.

But you promised that the internet

would be ok. So why isn't it working?

That's why I notified

the change of addresses that early...


Yes, I'm holding on.


So please, connect me.


Someone's in a hurry!

- You scared me!

No worries, it's just me.

We will probably meet more often.


Here? - Yes.

Ah! That does me good.

Not too hard, be more gentle.

You can massage yourself

if you're delivering a lecture.

I'll keep quiet.

They want to visit our flat.

Who are "they"?

My parents called.

So they should come and visit.

- But not as such!

Everything should look...

It's not presentable like that.

or is it?

Why not?

We're not a museum.

Hey, they know we just moved in.

Tell them we're inviting them over

for a picnic with moving boxes romance.


Yes, please?

What? Really?

Yes, okay, thank you!

Thank you. You too!

It's me. I will fly!


- Yes!

That's awesome!

I'm so happy!

I'm so happy!

Certainly the right choice.

And so bright!

Thanks, Mum.


these walls will be painted.
