A good movie

To be honest, I really had no idea what to expect from this movie but since it did win the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, eventually, I must admit that I was really surprised by how much I actually enjoyed the damned thing.

" Director: Roy Andersson His 9th Movie My 1st movie watched from the director. I'm not sure what to think of this movie. Is it absurdist, philosophical, maniacal, a comedy, a tragedy, an attempt at cerebral filmmaking? All of the above? None of the above? I am beguiled. I walked away from it having many thoughts in my head and with the gut feeling of that it is an impressive piece of work, even if there are things about it I did not like.

"I really liked this one. I don't know how Andersson can maintain those static long shots with lots of movement inside the frame ... jus amazing. "

"First viewing - Aug. 7th Recommended by VierasTalo Well, this was a complete slog to get through. Even though I watched it in the afternoon I still had to fight to not fall asleep during it, and I kept hoping for something that would justify my sitting through it all. The entire film is shot from one point of view, a stationary camera that puts so much negative space between the audience and the film's events that it's impossible to connect with any of it. Obviously this is done on purpose, but"
