Meanwhile on Earth

Show trailer
Everything is connected and portrayed with warmth and humour in a stylish and highly Nordic film about the welfare state's last great taboo: death.

Jean Cocteau's words that films show us "death at work" are taken literally in Carl Olsson's warm and thoroughly human portrayal of the last great taboo of the Nordic welfare state. And yet. It is all the life that unfolds around death that we are observing here. The hospital, the crematorium, the cemetery. Throughout Olsson's film, we not only find out how it is all tied together. We also understand how we humans are connected to each other without knowing it. In theatrical but warm and often underplayed scenes, we meet those who are still alive at work.
