Storyline

ABOUT ENDLESSNESS is a reflection on human life in all its beauty and cruelty, its splendor and banality. We wander, dreamlike, gently guided by our Scheherazade-esque narrator. Inconsequential moments take on the same significance as historical events: a couple floats over a war-torn Cologne; on the way to a birthday party, a father stops to tie his daughter's shoelaces in the pouring rain; teenage girls dance outside a cafe; a defeated army marches to a prisoner-of-war camp. Simultaneously an ode and a lament, ABOUT ENDLESSNESS presents a kaleidoscope of all that is eternally human, an infinite story of the vulnerability of existence. Written by Magnolia Pictures

Dead pan tragi-comedy genius

About Endlessness (currently on MUBI) is tragi-comic genius. One minute you're sad, the next you're laughing you're head off. You might hate the first 20 minutes but watch it til the end - It is a film that MUST be watched til the end. It is slowly but surely affecting. And scenes that should be bleak become dead pan hilarious. For me, better than the pigeon sat on a branch.... that won the palm d'or. Just don't expect a plot, nor a beginning, middle or end - it is not conventional in any way - and that's what makes it great.
