About the film
★★★★★ ‘Roy Andersson’s latest is another masterpiece of the human condition… an amazing experience… endlessly rewatchable’ The Guardian
Winner of the Silver Lion at the Venice Film Festival.
The latest masterpiece from Roy Andersson (A Pigeon Sat On A Branch Reflecting On Existence) is a reflection on human life in all its beauty and cruelty, its splendor and banality.
We wander, dreamlike, gently guided by our Scheherazade-esque narrator. Inconsequential moments take on the same significance as historical events: a couple floats over a war-torn Cologne; on the way to a birthday party, a father stops to tie his daughter’s shoelaces in the pouring rain; teenage girls dance outside a cafe; a defeated army marches to a prisoner-of-war camp.
Simultaneously an ode and a lament, ABOUT ENDLESSNESS presents a kaleidoscope of all that is eternally human, an infinite story of the vulnerability of existence.
(Swedish: Om det oändliga)
