The award-winning anthology film ‘This Magnificent Cake!’ is a dryly comedic look at Belgium’s
colonial past, examining it through five wildly different perspectives and told with a healthy
helping of deadpan humour. It is paired with the Swedish gem ‘The Burden’, where a group of
office workers stages elaborate musical numbers to keep boredom and existential dread at bay.
Combining the humour of Roy Andersson with the staging of Wes Anderson, it is a real treat.
