Swedish director Roy Andersson explores the 'grandeur of
existence', in this award-winning film consisting of fifty surreal
short sketches, each filmed in one take. Filming the actors in a
variety of unconventional settings with tragicomic themes,
Andersson explores the humanity and common threads that link their
everyday lives with empathy and charm. A visually distinctive film,
its characters include a disgruntled psychiatrist, a junior school
teacher with emotional issues, a heart broken groupie, and a
business consultant having a bad-hair day.

Review This Product
Droll and persistently amusing
Sun, 8 Mar 2015 | Review
Scandinavian humour is dry and clever and subtle. This surreal film includes magical reality elements that can be breathtaking, though set in very ordinary everyday lives. You can never guess what'll happen next, but enjoy waiting to find out. I especially love the scene with the old man taking his dog for a walk ( or a drag ) while pushing his walking frame.
