Synopsis

One of the world's great, individual directors, Roy Andersson presents his surreally witty view of the human condition through a series of hilarious vignettes which expose the love, pain, triumphs and misunderstandings of our lives. Some of you may remember Andersson's excellent Songs from the Second Floor which we screened in 2002 - this is less austere and more genuinely amusing, but the Swedish master has lost nothing of his deadpan attitude, portraying people who are desperate for others to acknowledge them, yet are blind to anyone's pain but their own. Named after a phrase by Goethe, You, The Living confirms Andersson's status as one of world cinema's true originals.

Critics

open_quote Andersson is radically different from anyone else, with a technical, compositional rigour that puts other movie-makers and visual artists to shame. close_quote PETER BRADSHAW, GUARDIAN
