About Endlessness

Roy Andersson, Sweden, Germany, Norway, France, 2019o

About Endlessness is a reflection on human life in all its beauty and cruelty. 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. And a defeated army marches to a prisoner-of-war camp.

Mit fröhlichen Menschen hat Andersson sonst ja nicht viel am Hut. Aber in dieser Abfolge von Tableaus hat der preisgekrönte Schwede auch mal Platz für tanzende Teenager. Ein kleiner Hoffnungsschimmer in einer aschgrauen Welt, die unter den Folgen des Zweiten Weltkriegs zu ächzen scheint. Allerdings waren Anderssons Werke auch schon verstörender.
