Synopsis

Director Roy Andersson's Special Jury Prize-winner at Cannes in 2000. A man burns down his furniture store. A huge traffic jam clogs the streets of the city. Hordes of people arrive at the airport with their possessions piled high on luggage trolleys. Respectable businessmen congregate to sacrifice a young girl. Proceeding from one absurd scenario to the next, Andersson's deadpan vision of a society coming apart at the seams has been compared to 'Twin Peaks' and Terry Gilliam's 'Brazil'.
