The film contains 39 vignettes that examines the absurdity of ordinary life.

The song Jonathan continuously plays on his record player is "Lille Vackre Anna" from Alf Pröysen.

According to Roy Andersson the film had been inspired by Ladri di biciclette (1948).

It was selected as the Swedish entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 88th Academy Awards; however, the movie did not receive a nomination.
