  • Swedish filmmaker Roy Andersson continues in the absurdist tradition of his film SONGS FROM THE SECOND FLOOR with this bleak comedy. At first, YOU, THE LIVING might seem small, thanks to its structure of numerous short stories, but this was a mammoth undertaking. The director spent three years just shooting footage and creating sets, but the effort shows in this nicely crafted film.
  • Critic Reviews
    "[A] deadpan but nonetheless heartfelt affirmation of human existence....The jokes are sometimes broad, sometimes sublimely subtle and sometimes, somehow, both at once."
    New York Times

    4 stars out of 4 -- "There's joy in watching a movie like YOU, THE LIVING. It is flawless in what it does..."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "[T]he film develops a measured, even majestic rhythm....[Attention] is rewarded with episodes that are worthy of comparison with those of the silent-era masters, Buster Keaton in particular."
    Los Angeles Times
