Time Out says

Not a standard 'making of' doc, this unassuming featurette on Songs from the Second Floor, co-directed by Roy Andersson's brother Kjell, spends time hanging out in a couple of Roy's inimitable sets - the disused hangar turned sweeping grey train station, and the gravel pit where a crowd of locals were assembled to witness the sacrifice of a nine-year-old - and observing the film's formation. Roy vouches a disdain for modern politics' illiberal technocratic bent, laughing gaily at anything that passes - and leaving his cameraman to knot his brow with artistic doubt. What registers is the human scale of the huge enterprise.
