You, The Living
Walker Cinema, 6:30pm
“The work of a real original – might almost say a genius.” – The Guardian (UK)
You, the Living hilariously explores man’s existence, behavior, thoughts worries, happiness, sorrow, and a profound longing for validation and love in 50 interconnected shorts inspired by Goethe’s poetry series Roman Elegies. Throughout the film, dream sequences and music (both as background and performed on camera) are used to reflect the woes and desire of the characters. Andersson’s flawless and creative shots create sympathy with his characters yet draw amusement from the fact that each things his or her suffering is unique. 2007, DCP, in Swedish with English Subtitles, 95 minutes.
