A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence (2014)

Roy Andersson directs Nils Westblom, Holger Andersson and Charlotta Larsson in this arthouse comedy where Swedish sad sacks and grotesques go about their dystopian grind.

More from Little Sweden. Pretty much the same vibe as You, The Living. A kinda utilitarian surreal sketch show. The recurring characters of two depressed novelty item salesmen are a welcome addition but the final sections lurch into an overly cruel set of tableaux that do little but visualise what we all already sadly know about humanity.
