About Endlessness

Where is tragedy, there is also hope and comedy
With About Endlessness, Roy Andersson adds to his cinematic oeuvre with a reflection on human life in all its beauty and cruelty, its splendour and banality.
A reflection on human life in all its beauty and cruelty, its splendour 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.

Media reception

The Guardian
"Amazing experience: Andersson has done for Stockholm what Godard did for Paris and Allen for Manhattan. Andersson’s films are endlessly rewatchable.“
IndieWire
“About Endlessness is a lens that clarifies the amorphous period in between, when the full scope of existence is somehow beautiful and terrible all at once.
