Film director Roy Anderssons comeback "Songs from the second floor" was greeted with standing ovations at the world premiÃ©re at Cannes, in may 2000. Kjell Andersson has in a co-operation with Bo Harringer and FilmAtÃ©ljen documented the birth of this film, during two and a half years.
The Greatness of the small man is concentrated on three key scenes in the movie. The film also portrays how Roy Andersson puts his theories of society, evil and superstition to practice. Since Kjell and Roy are brothers one has really got the opportunity to dig deep in Roy and his ideas and methods, through very personal conversations.
The Greatness of the small man was shown on SVT in October 2000.
