An aging hairdresser escapes his nursing home and embarks on an odyssey across his small town to style a dead woman’s hair for her funeral, rediscovering his sparkle along the way.

MUBI's take

In a joyous, moving portrait of a queer man in middle America, Udo Kier dazzles and delights as the Liberace of hairdressing who comes out of retirement to take one last job. Swan Song is a gem of a film, with the inimitable actor in a rare lead role and dressed in one fabulous outfit after another.
