2007. Sweden. Dir: Roy Andersson. With Jessika Lundberg, Elisabeth Helander. 95 min.
“Man is man’s delight,” claims the Norse proverb that inspired this film, an intertwined series of fifty hilariously tragic short sketches. With a dry Scandinavian humor best described as “Monty Python meets Ingmar Bergman,” Andersson probes the dreams and fears of an overweight couple, a lovelorn groupie, and a sousaphone player, among others.
