The title, whether taken from an image of Bruegel or embodied in museum taxidermy, shows Andersson's striking directorial control in the concluding work of his "living" trilogy. With stories ranging from the humor of death to the boring lives of traveling toy salesman, and travels in time as well as space, Andersson challenges nature of narrative with visual infusions and connections glimpsed through windows or only seen, afterwards, in our minds, still chuckling. Golden Lion for Best Film, Venice Film Festival.
