Dark Swedish Humor Takes Wing In 'Pigeon' Film At Venice

by Wochit 0:42 mins

In Swedish filmmaker Roy Andersson's offbeat film "A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence", shown at the Venice Film Festival on Tuesday, a businessman about to shoot himself in a posh office takes a last call on his mobile phone. He says to the unidentified and unheard caller, "I'm happy to hear you're doing fine." In one of the running gags of this laconic but droll movie, the distraught man is not clearly heard and has to repeat the platitude. Andersson, one of Sweden's most successful filmmakers since Ingmar Bergman, and the creator of many often hilarious television commercials, does not do superficial or light.
