Synopsis

A series of vignettes present a disparate crew of characters: a stout depressive and her long-suffering husband; a young girl with an unrequited crush on a rock musician; a barber taking sweet revenge on a racist customer; couples with too much to say, or too little; and a diligent tuba player…

Our take

The Swedish king of tragicomedy Roy Andersson surveys all facets of society in this illuminating, unnerving, and eccentric work of dour hilarity. One of the ’00s most acclaimed arthouse films, this epic comedy is part whimsical anxiety dream, part jam session between Ingmar Bergman and Monty Python.
