With A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence, Swedish director Roy Andersson completes the trilogy comprising Songs From the Second Floor and You, The Living, confirming his singular voice in contemporary cinema.

This latest cinematic oddity is a reflection on the human condition which unfolds in thirty nine meticulously composed tableaux vivants. One constant through this magical mystery tour of suffering, indulgence and melancholy is the pair of travelling salesmen who are spectacularly unsuccessful in their attempts to hawk novelty items and bring a little fun into people’s lives. 

Winner of the Golden Lion at Venice Film Festival.
