A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existance

A Pigeon 550“A bold, beguiling and utterly unclassifiable director, Andersson thinks life is a comedy and feels it's a tragedy, and is able to wrestle these conflicting impulses into a gorgeous, deadpan deadlock.” –Guardian

Two travelling salesmen—a modern-day Don Quixote and Sancho Panza—peddle their novelty items as they wander through a world alternately grand and petty, gorgeous and humiliating, filled with low-key joy and sadness. It is all told by a bird who reflects on the human condition. Roy Andersson’s undeniable masterpiece is an unforgettable deadpan commentary on contemporary life.
