I'm looking for info on a film I saw: title, director, anything.
I saw it in the early 1990s on Canada's public station TVO's program Film International. It was a Scandinavian film, I'm pretty sure Danish, maybe The Netherlands (I don't think it was Sweden or Finland).
I only saw the second half and I may be mis-remembering details, but here goes.
It was very strange, like a blend of Kafka and Monty Python. Some guy was trapped in an institution of some form, perhaps a mental hospital. He went around, cannonballs fell from the sky, people played tennis. At one point he was chased by a stuffed animal tied to his leg, wrestling with it.
At one point he found his glasses and things seemed clearer, then they broke and everything went strange again. I think he killed himself in the end.
Does this seem familiar to anyone? I'd love to see the entire film, but I don't remember its title or director.
