Härlig är jorden (World of Glory)

Short Film | Sweden | 1991
Director Roy Andersson
Director of PhotographyIstván Borbás
Synopsis The film is unique and shows, in a series of tableaus, a man in various frozen situations. He's the product of a stiff and reserved Sweden, living politely while feeling very miserable somewhere behind the painfully correct façade. The film's Swedish title, Härlig är Jorden (literally, 'Lovely is the earth'), which comes from a Swedish hymn of the same name, stands in sharp contrast to the cold and lifeless mood of the scenes.
