A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence
En duva satt på en gren och funderade på tillvaron
First screened in September 2014
Director: Roy Andersson. Cast: Holger Andersson, Nils Westblom. Screenplay: Roy Andersson.
Frontloaded with most brilliant vignettes; tapers off a bit. Such droll humanism.
Andersson vets won't be struck by many changes in his approach; initiates may clock the unnevenness of wit, subtlety, and payoff. But his remains a rare, uproarious, and incisive voice.
