You, The Living

A tragi-comic panorama of the human condition, Swedish director Roy Andersson ('Songs from the Second Floor') has stitiched together 50 short scenes of human behaviour: a man's wife hates his tuba; someone misses an elevator; a woman sings about wanting a motorcycle...the segments are unconnected, but each bears Andersson's unique aesthetic and a generous helping of gloomy humour. An arresting tapestry of the meaning(lessness) of modern life, from a true auteur.
