Dir. Roy Andersson. 1975, 137 mins. DCP. With Thommy Bergrren, Mona Seilitz. A man arrives at an elegant yet shabby seaside hotel to take a job as a waiter, falls in love with a waitress, and is drawn into an elaborate crime scheme. Andersson’s follow-up to A Swedish Love Story baffled audiences at the time with its dark, mysterious tone, and the film was famously a critical and commercial flop, short-circuiting Andersson’s feature filmmaking career. As flawed as it may be, this rarely screened film is compelling, a moody and mesmerizing neonoir.
