Following SONGS FROM THE SECOND FLOOR and YOU, THE LIVING, Roy AnderssonGÇÖs award-winning film (Best Film, Venice Film Festival 2014) is a hilarious black comedy about life, death and what it means to be a human being. Sam and Jonathan are two travelling salesmen peddling novelty items GÇô mostly unsuccessfully. Like modern-day Don Quixote and Sancho, they take us on a kaleidoscopic journey through multiple human destinies. It is a trip that shows us beauty in one moment, pettiness in another and the humour and tragedy within us all. One that evokes the grandeur of life as well as the ultimate frailty of humanity. By turns tragic, absurd, meditative and hilarious A PIGEON SAT ON A BRANCH REFLECTING ON EXISTENCE is the culmination of one of modern cinemaGÇÖs greatest talents and is nothing short of a masterpiece.
A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence
