Scandi: A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence En duva satt på en gren och funderade på tillvaron

More info

Like modern times’ Don Quixote and Sancho Panza, Sam and Jonathan, two travelling salesmen peddling novelty items, take us on a kaleidoscopic wandering through human destinies. A trip that shows us the beauty of single moments, the pettiness of others, the humor and tragedy that is in us, life’s grandeur as well as frailty of humanity. With a panoramic view it is told by a bird reflecting on the human condition. The pigeon is astonished by the humans—their activities, follies, prides, and agitation, which he tries to make sense of and understand. A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence is the third film of Andersson’s trilogy about humans lives, in which the director creates a tension between the banal and the essential, the comic and the tragic—to show the dialectic and dynamic nature of existence, while shaping the thought that mankind is potentially heading towards apocalypse, but also that the outcome is in our hands. Andersson’s Pigeon managed to amaze, move and left awe-struck the jury of the oldest international film festivals – Venice, and received the highest festival award – Golden Lion. Swedish master of comic absurdity, Roy Andersson is able to bring a humor in such painful subjects as mortality, aging, unpaid debts and unrequited love in his films. Show more

The Grump is a man from the past. A man who knows that everything used to be so much better in the old days.

He has to spend a weekend in Helsinki to attend physiotherapy. The Grump doesn't like this for four reasons: 1) He has to take a taxi. 2) He can't take daily care of his wife, an Alzheimer's patient. 3) He can't drive, which means he might have to sit in a car with a female driver. 4) He has to spend time with his family.
