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. 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 daughterís 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.

Written and Directed by Roy Anderson
Release Date - TBD

Crazy how you can instantly tell itís a Roy Andersson film just from a random still frame on a YouTube thumbnail.
That's what fiction is for. It's for getting at the truth when the truth isn't sufficient for the truth.

I can tell and I have never seen one of his movies.
I'm so many people.
