synopsis :

Swedish master Roy Andersson (See RETRO) returns with an absurdist and surrealistic comedy, which moves freely from reality to nightmare to fantasy. The story loosely follows Sam and Jonathan, two traveling salesmen, who unsuccessfully try to win customers for their joke articles (vampire teeth, laughing bags and a monster mask). There is no main storyline in the traditional sense. However, all scenes are connected.

Sutradara ulung Swedia Roy Andersson (lihat RETRO) kembali dengan komedi absurd dan surealistis, yang berpindahpindah tanpa aturan dari kenyataan ke mimpi buruk ke khayalan.

Film ini mengikuti Sam dan Jonathan, dua penjaja keliling yang selalu gagal mendapat pembeli untuk alat-alat keperluan melawak yang mereka jual (gigi vampir, kantung tertawa dan topeng monster). Di sini tidak ada alur cerita utama yang lazim, namun semua adegan saling terhubung.

The final chapter in Roy Andersson’s droll trilogy ‘on being a human being’ introduces three dozen more brilliantly absurd vignettes.
