Foreign Film about the Afterlife

I’m trying to find a film that I think was Swedish (though I’m not 100% certain of the country of origin) about a man who’s apparently died and is living in a city in the afterlife. Despite being given everything he needs to be happy – job, house, girlfriend – he can’t seem to feel any emotion. Everything is dulled down, even the color schemes in the movie, and he gradually realizes how unhappy he is. Eventually he finds a way to escape, although the movie leaves it up to the viewer to decide what’s really happened to him. I’m thinking this movie is about ten years old, so around 2010 or so.

  1. I suspect you may be remembering The Bothersome Man (Den brysomme mannen) from 2006. I got it in a DVD box set called Film Festival Gems and found it very memorable indeed.
