    ''and death, the grim master, bids them dance. he commands them to hold hands and dance in a long line. the stern master leads the way with his scythe and hourglass. but skat dangles at the end with his lyre. they dance away from the dawn in a solemn dance, away to the dark country, while the rain runs down over their faces... and washes away their salty tears.''

    it's probably the best and most philosophical film ever made.
    it is about the meaning of life or rather the lack of it.
    is there a greater meaning? maybe. but we'll never know.
    so it focuses on everyday life and the happiness that comes from such a simple work and not searching for a grand meaning.
    as albert camus once said: ''one must imagine sisyphus happy.''
    it makes us actively think about this, using bertolt brecht's distancing effect, that is achieved through shooting with very low quality.
    masterpiece.
