    1975. Sweden. Directed by Roy Andersson. With Thommy Berggren, Mona Seilitz, Wille Andréason. Giliap, the new waiter at the gloomy Hotel Busarewski, unknowingly initiates a peculiar love triangle when he falls in love with a beautiful waitress who may or may not already be involved with a curious Captain Hook–like character known as The Count. Andersson describes the film as his fabulous flop: three years in the making, it went over budget and bombed at the box office, rendering Andersson persona non grata of the Swedish film industry for twenty-five years. However misunderstood it was in his home country, the film was praised abroad and makes a beautiful, if perplexing, epilogue to A Swedish Love Story. In Swedish; English subtitles. 137 min.
