Roy Andersson directs Elisabeth Helander, Jörgen Nohall and Jessika Lundberg in this Swedish arthouse comedy where we witness the population of Lethe go about their futile existences.
A series of deadpan, desolate sketches. The League of Gentlemen slowed down to a painful pace and bleached clean of all primary colour. Ashen faced tableaux that mocks the ironies of existence. Everyone lives in a Kafka-esque waking nightmare where the punchline is apocalyptic. I’m not saying I didn’t like it but another ten minute would have killed me.
