ABOUT ENDLESSNESS is a reflection on human life in all its beauty and cruelty, its splendor and banality.

The latest unclassifiable cinematic creation from celebrated Swedish filmmaker Roy Andersson (A PIGEON SAT ON A BRANCH REFLECTING ON EXISTENCE) weaves together multiple visually arresting vignettes into a powerful and infinite story of the vulnerability of existence. Making full use of the filmmaker’s patented wry, world-weary, often utterly hilarious worldview on the absurdity of our times, ABOUT ENDLESSNESS is constructed from interwoven narratives of various characters experiencing life as a series of poetic episodes. Through a series of brilliantly-conveyed images drift lonely figures searching for meaning: a pastor plunged into a crisis of faith; a psychiatrist closing his office to those in need in order to catch a train; a wan bureaucrat recalling an old childhood friend he thinks he has seen wandering the streets; the strange meaning of a women’s broken shoe; a couple floating Chagall-like over a city in ruins. Philosophically punctuating these vignettes is an unseen narrator offering wistful observations of the state of human experience. It’s all imitable, unforgettable Andersson.

“This is a movie that’s more than the sum of its parts.”

“A mesmerizing odyssey to the heart of existence … Swedish auteur Roy Andersson’s latest is another masterpiece of the human condition.”

“Andersson’s consistency may have made him a director for acolytes above all, but they will find this a satisfying and richly resonant lesson in obliqueness and sometimes opacity.”
