Starts April 30!
“Short, bittersweet and exquisitely imagined. Immaculate, somehow tender-hearted. The film finds pockets of joy and intimacy amid more conflicted musings. [Andersson’s] mission: to ornately reconstruct the everyday, and to send us back into the world a little wiser to its strangeness.” – Guy Lodge, Variety
A reflection on human life in all its beauty and cruelty, its splendor 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.
