Audience Reviews for A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence

  • Oct 11, 2015
    With a wonderful mise-en-scène and cinematography (mostly gorgeous wide-angle long shots), this amusing collection of several vignettes can be pretty ironic and surreal as they show that life is made up not only of gracious, strange and prosaic moments but also of pain and vicious deeds.

    Roy Andersson produces vignettes that are all ridiculous and yet prompt intense thinking in the minds of the audience. Scenes make you laugh, shock or just scratch your head. Nonetheless, you will remember it and want to talk about it.
