A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence(2014)
Bleak, episodic existential comedy, following two novelty salesmen, that jumps between reality and fantasy in an attempt to understand the human condition. There's also a pigeon sitting on a branch reflecting on existence. This is Swedish director Roy Andersson's third film in his "living" trilogy, following the quite brilliant Songs from the Second Floor and You, the Living. All three films are marked by a distinctive visual style - deep focus tableaus - and deadpan humour.

A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence
BY Red superstar
My colleague couldn't stand this and my wife found it so so and I can understand it not working for some - but if it IS your thing it's sublime - absurdist dioramas, shot in gorgeous deep focus and with extremely considered art direction/composition/blocking.
