“Certified Fresh” on Rotten Tomatoes, acclaimed Swedish writer and director Roy Andersson’s (A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence) captivating drama, About Endlessness, arrives On Demand on Tuesday, August 3.
“Transfixing and quietly gorgeous” (TIME), the strange, yet fascinating take on human existence is a cinematic masterpiece that “gloriously collages the absurdity and grandeur of the everyday” (Vulture).
Showcasing seemingly insignificant or historical moments, whether playful, sorrowful, simple, lighthearted or heavy, About Endlessness beautifully captures what it means to be human as it delicately wanders into the day-to-day lives of everyday people. The artistic drama leans into Andersson’s classic cinematic vision as he stitches together short, intimate and thought-provoking vignettes, truly encapsulating what it means to be human. Guided by a soft-spoken narrator, audiences are introduced to an array of life experiences through a wide range of characters from a woman with a shoe mishap, a priest who has lost touch with his faith and a father-daughter duo in the pouring rain to a couple in war-torn Cologne and a vulnerable Adolf Hitler in the thick of war.
About Endlessness will be available on On Demand via Apple TV, Google Play, Prime Video, FandangoNOW and more on August 3.
