About Bruno & Hogginfritz - A posh over the top upper-class young Englishman (Hogginfritz) has "escaped" from a mental ward and is living in an abandoned house where the furniture seems to come alive. Once the Postman (Bruno) steps inside to deliver one piece of mail, the eccentric chaos begins and their relationship explodes into a high energy romp to understand what is what and who is who. (Runtime - 50 minutes)
