YOU, THE LIVING
2007 Official Oscar Selection from Sweden for Best Foreign Language Film
Roy Andersson returns with another look at the human condition, in all its foibles, mad frustrations and madcap flailings, in this one-of-kind compendium of comic vignettes. The director of SONGS FROM THE SECOND FLOOR brings his absurdist wit to this bitingly sardonic, but nonetheless sweet, sketch comedy, with frequently uproarious results. Official Selection, 2007 Cannes Film Festival; Best Director, 2007 Chicago Film Festival; Nominee for Best Director, 2007 European Film Academy Awards.
