In a minor town the morose manager is primarily responsible for the bad atmosphere of a restaurant. But central for the plot are three persons: a male waiter who is never named (here called W), the female waiter Anna, and "the count", a self-invented nickname by a man cleaning plates.

The reason it took twenty years before we got to see another movie from Roy Andersson.
The first thing that strikes you after watching this movie, is that you've wasted two hours of your precious time. This is because the plot is extremely slowly paced: I usually don't mind watching pictures where there's not a lot of action, but then I want content! There also seems to be no connection between the ending and the rest of the movie, something which ought to disturb most viewers. Taking all this into consideration, there's really no wonder that the revenues from this movie only covered about 1/20 of the budget!
