Roy Andersson has created images of life as a modern human being that are hard to shake off once you have seen them. Like a painter behind a film camera, the Swedish cineast has created an exclusive and perfectionist life opus, where existential absurdity and pitch-black humour go hand in hand. Now, the shy Andersson has made what he himself has described as his last film, the critically acclaimed 'About Endlessness'. 'Being a Human Person' is a portrait of a singular artist at work as his time on this earth is about to run out, and he knows it. A poignant but – entirely in Andersson's spirit – poetic and unsentimental portrait, where everything starts and ends with the philosophy of life itself. Andersson's swan song marks the end of a valuable chapter in film history. For when he has made his last film, there will simply not be another one with the same kind of visionary and existential power.
