About Endlessness is a reflection on human life in all its beauty and cruelty, its splendor 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.
“This film is about the endless of signs of existence, the signs of being human,” said Andersson about the film, adding: “If you can combine technical perfection with a beautiful energy and poetry, then it is fantastic. That’s what I want to achieve, and it is extremely difficult.”
The movie stars Martin Serner, Jessica Louthander, Tatiana Delaunay, Anders Hellström, Jan Eje Ferling, Bengt Bergius, and Thore Flygel. Pernilla Sandström and John Carlsson serve as producers, with Philippe Bober and Håkon Øverås co-producing. Executive producers include Sarah nagal and Isabell Wiegan. The movie is produced by Roy Andersson Filmproduktion AB in co-production with 4 ½ Fiksjon AS, Essential Films in association with Parisienne de Production, Sveriges Television AB, Arte France Cinéma, ZDF/Arte, and the Film Capital Stockholm Fund.
