Why is life so complicated?

A woman (a wife?), a man (a husband?), an apartment (a home?), an office (a job?) and life. It starts, it ends, and mostly something happens. Or not. Is it complicated? Why? Warning: it inevitably involves pissing. Life does. And this movie.

Director Statement

Is life complicated? If so, why? If not, why not? Does this little movie have anything to do with the question in its title? Nothing whatsoever. Why is it its title then? That's a good question, I'm glad you asked. Wait, I did. It's complicated. Maybe I should refrain from making statements, but then this part would be empty. Would that actually be better than this drivel? Only time will tell. Or some person who will have an opinion about it. Or it will remain unanswered, just like the question in the title of this little movie. Hey, it's just like life. It starts, it ends and something happens in between. Or not. And it may or may not be complicated. Maybe for a reason. Maybe not.
