A film poem inspired by the Peruvian poet César Vallejo. A story about our need for love, our confusion, greatness and smallness and, most of all, our vulnerability. It is a story with many characters, among them a father and his mistress, his youngest son and his girlfriend. It is a film about big lies, abandonment and the eternal longing for companionship and confirmation. Written by

This is a masterpiece, with no doubt the best swedish film since Ingmar Bergman's "Fanny and Alexander" in 1984, probably one of the best ever. What could compete with it? Bergman's best films and maybe some of Bo Widerberg's, but it's hard too compare.
It's extremely symbolic. I haven't seen such a symbolic film before. Every scene is filled with details that forms a great and definitely personal way of expression. Roy Andersson has his own way to make films.
Though it takes a stand for the week in society, I can't say I experienced the film as being political. It more criticizes our hole civilization. It's too "odd" too win an Oscar, but more than any other film I've seen it truly deserves one.
