Winner of the Golden Lion at Venice Film Festival, Roy Andersson’s masterful reflection on the human condition unfolds in thirty nine meticulously composed tableaux vivants. One constant through this magical mystery tour of suffering, indulgence and melancholy is the pair of travelling salesmen Jonathan and Sam, who are spectacularly unsuccessful in their attempts to hawk novelty items and bring a little fun into people’s lives. Comparisons with Bergman and Fellini seem inevitable for a film that blends visual fantasy, deadpan comedy and existential angst into a statement on the struggle to be human.
