The latest feature from visionary Swedish filmmaker Roy Andersson (A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence), About Endlessness is a reflection on human life in all its beauty and cruelty, its splendor and banality. In his exquisitely-crafted tableau style, 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.
The movie stars Martin Serner, Jessica Louthander, Tatiana Delaunay, Anders Hellström, Jan-Eje Ferling, Bengt Bergius, and Thore Flygel.
