A young man named Giliap (Thommy Berggren), who has not found his place in life, takes temporary employment as a waiter at a dilapidated hotel. The film explores the relationship between the hotel‘s employees, but chiefly the relationship between Giliap and the beautiful Anna (Mona Seilitz). A relationship that Giliap in his awkwardness is unable to develop. “Giliap”, Roy Andersson‘s controversial second feature film, was presented at the Directors’ Fortnight at the Cannes International Film Festival in 1976.
