Part of 'Europe in 25 films: the critics’ choice' - featured in The Observer. Nominated for the Palme d'Or, this absurd and original comedy is from the brilliantly offbeat worldview of Swedish filmmaker Roy Andersson, director of the acclaimed 'You, the Living' and 'A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Exsistence'. Described by critic J. Hoberman as slapstick Ingmar Bergman, the film unfolds as a series of comic interconnected vignettes which portray scenes from an urban world that has ground to a halt and whose citizens teeter on the brink of madness. "Each sequence is suffused with spectral disquiet and a black comic squeak of hysteria" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
