You will feel the running time, and the events are connected more so in theme than narrative, but this movie has a lot to say about the human condition and how we interact with others in modern society and it is worth hearing.

Too long and goofy.

Hits you over the head with the satire. Disjointed. Not funny. Far too long. Crude.

this film is extraordinary, an examination of empathy in a crowded world, where everyone is disconnected, Kafka meets the Existentialists with the sardonic humour of a Woody Allen, the
Proustian length and detail, however, is demanding, but like with Proust, the rewards are utterly profound - the cinematographic palette, as well, is a continuous and wonderful compendium of Classical European art, from Caravaggio through Mondrian to Escher and beyond

This film from Sweden is 2.5 hrs long. It pokes fun at contemporary art forms, and explores human reactions to a given situation with irony and satire. So in a sense it is a subdued comedy of sorts. I have a feeling it is not everyone's cup of tea but it is still a decent human drama from the land of Bergman. In Swedish and English with subtitles.
