Plot Summary:

"A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence" is the third film in a trilogy from director Roy Andersson, including "Songs from the Second Floor" and "You the Living." A wholly original film comprised of darkly comic vignettes that are tied together through the misadventures of Sam and Jonathan, traveling salesmen peddling novelty items, in search of an a shop called “Party.” As they wander through the town, the scenarios that surround take the viewer on a trip that shows the beauty of single moments, the pettiness of others, the humor and tragedy that is in us, and life’s grandeur, as well as the frailty of humanity.
