ABOUT ENDLESSNESS(OM DET OÄNDLIGA) Features
In his latest fable, Swedish auteur Roy Andersson tells a story of life’s melancholic beauty through a dreamy lens and his quintessential style of splendid banality.
Andersson’s vision of an absurd yet deeply human Europe plays out as a series of blackly comic vignettes — three teenagers dance for a scarcely populated cafe, a priest loses faith in God, and a couple glide far above a destroyed city. Despite Andersson’s use of greyed facades and sullen-eyed characters, About Endlessness peers inquisitively into the comically dry moments of pain, sadness and joy that punctuate all our lives.
