You, the Living (Du levande)



Directed by Roy Andersson
Sweden, 2007, 95 minutes


You, the living is an exploration on the “grandeur of existence”.   The film consists of a fluent succession of fifty short sketches, most with a tragicomic undertone.  It is centered around the lives of a group of individuals, such as an overweight woman, a disgruntled psychiatrist, a heartbroken groupie, a carpenter, a business consultant, and a school teacher with emotional issues and her rug-selling husband.  This is a film about humankind, its greatness and its baseness, joy and sorrow, its self-confidence and anxiety, its desire to love and be loved.

Original version Swedish; English subtitles
