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 splendour 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.
Cast: Bengt Bergius, Anja Broms, Marie Burman

★★★★★ "mesmerising odyssey to the heart of existence...[a] masterpiece" - GUARDIAN
★★★★★ "sad, sweet and altogether sublime" - DAILY TELEGRAPH UK
★★★★ "so starkly beautiful, so filled with a melancholic but deeply felt questioning, so stimulating in their combination of grim humour and resigned depiction of humanity and its foibles, that they make for strangely compelling viewing." - DAVID STRATTON
★★★★ "Andersson is a director of singular, unmistakable vision and, with its short, occasionally amusing and always absorbing scenes, About Endlessness is very watchable" - THE LIST
