Giliap is a 1975 Swedish drama film directed by Roy Andersson, starring Thommy Berggren as a man who takes a job as a waiter at a run-down hotel. It was a financial and critical failure, and it led to Andersson's not making another feature film for 25 years. Andersson has admitted that the film contains flaws, and he claims that the main reason for them was that he was not completely in control of the production, and therefore he had to compromise in several scenes. He has also suggested that the audience was not ready for the film, expecting it to be more similar to his previous film A Swedish Love Story: "I think they didn't understand what I was doing. Later, when Kubrick came out with Barry Lyndon, people accepted that - it's the same mood. But these things take time." The film is notable for its stylised settings, resembling what would later be seen in a more refined form in Andersson's Songs from the Second Floor and You, the Living.

Synopsis

A man arrives in a Swedish small town to work as a waiter at the run-down Hotel Busarewski (a play on the Swedish word "buse" - "crook"). He is installed in a small room, and soon begins to serve customers under the supervision of a strict, wheelchair-using manager suffering from an exaggerated self image.

Une réflexion sur la vie humaine dans toute sa beauté et sa cruauté, sa splendeur et sa banalité. Transportés dans un rêve, nous sommes guidés par la douce voix narrative d'une Shéhérazade. Les moments non pertinents prennent le même sens que les événements historiques : un couple flotte dans une colonie dévastée par la guerre ; alors qu’il accompagne sa fille à une fête d’anniversaire, un père s’arrête pour attacher ses chaussures sous une pluie battante ; des adolescentes dansent devant un café ; une armée vaincue marche vers un camp de prisonniers.

Sam et Jonathan, deux marchands ambulants de farces et attrapes, nous entraînent dans une promenade kaléidoscopique à travers la destinée humaine. C’est un voyage qui révèle l’humour et la tragédie cachés en nous, la grandeur de la vie, ainsi que l’extrême fragilité de l’humanité…

There is no central plot, but some of the vignettes connect loosely. All the stories show the essential humanity of the characters and address themes of life, existence and happiness.

A man is standing in a subway car, his face dirty with soot. In his right hand he carries a plastic bag with documents, or rather, the charred leftovers of them. In a corridor a man is clinging desperately to the legs of the boss who just fired him. He is screaming: "I've been here for thirty years!" In a coffee shop someone is waiting for his father, who just burned his furniture company for insurance money. Traffic jams and self-flagellating stock brokers are filling up the streets while an economist, desperate for a solution to the problem of work becoming too expensive, gazes into the crystal ball of a scryer. Everything and everyone is going somewhere but their goal and its meaning have disappeared along the way.
