Following the strange first trailer for Swedish director Roy Andersson's film About Endlessness (See it here), a clip has been released that helps to show the project's unique...well everything. The below shows a fairly simple scene where a server is pouring a glass of wine for a guest, but is enhanced by a unique approach to the framing of the scene along with the the pacing, acting, and everything else involved in the filmmaking process. Check it out below:
The story has been given vague description, essentially being described as a modern take on the classic Arabian Nights folk tales. Like the original story, the film is told from the perspective of the film's narrator, Scheherazade (who was part of the framing device of the original Arabian Nights) as she guides audiences through a series of skits that aren't always so simple and seem to become more dreamlike as the story goes on.
Perhaps audiences will be able to better describe it as it's become available in the US as of today in select theaters along with being available for purchase on VOD. Stay tuned!
