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

At times very funny, at times sad, and at times quite horrific, this surreal film is … well, surreal!

There is much that does make the viewer reflect on existence, on aspects of humanity, on death and life. It uses a bland, washed-out colour palette which matches the dead-pan delivery of much of the dialogue, and plays up the monotony and desperation of most of the protagonists. Reflecting on life, it seems, is serious business.

I certainly didn’t understand it, but I was entertained.
