About Endlessness (Om det oändliga)

Swedish filmmaker Roy Andersson (*A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence*) returns in peak form. *About Endlessness* follows a series of vignettes in which an unseen narrator observes the absurdity and humor of everyday life. But of course, this is Roy Andersson, so it is the driest, darkest humor money can buy. Some scenes drift into fantasy, while others are mundane and quotidian, but as a whole you get a stunning portrait of the human experience.
