About

A quiet, very San Francisco comedy of life among a small group of friends. Rembrandt Laughing was improvised over the period of about a month by Jost and his friends, mostly acting non-professionals. Berlin Festival, 1989, Toronto Festival 89. Broadcast WNET Independent Focus "A masterful elliptical account of a little over a year in the lives of a few friends in San Francisco... with a warmth, philosophical depth and overall sense of relaxation new to Jost's work. One of the ten best films of 1989." – Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader "Rembrandt Laughing ... a joy, a gem, a tissue paper tracing of epiphanies." – Amy Taubin, Village Voice
