The master of mirthful melancholy – Roy Andersson, returns with the Venice Film Festival award-winning rumination on what it means to be human

About Endlessness is 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-town 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.

 

★★★★★ “Andersson’s films are endlessly rewatchable. To view them is to abolish gravity.” – Peter Bradshaw’s Film of The Week, The Guardian

★★★★★ “A blissful melange of joy and sadness. Andersson’s masterpiece.” – David Jenkins, Little White Lies

“Profoundly melancholic, and yet counterintuitively life affirming – and indisputably the product of a unique creative mind’ – Jonathan Romney, Uncut

 “We don’t talk enough about how Roy Andersson is one of our best living diretors and a cinematic stylist beyond compare. A master of composition and palette control, as well as a noted purveyor of bleakly hilarious sight gags.” – Edgar Wright

 “Roy Anderson gives us again an endless and boundless artistic joy” – Alejandro Inarritu
