  3. ceknklsn's rating of the film Songs from the Second Floor

    75/100 (Yönetmenin You The Living ve A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence filmlerini üst üste 2 kere izleyecek şekilde sevmiştim. Zaten ikiside 9/10 verdiğim filmler. Gerçekten muazzamdılar. Ancak bu film Cannes'tan juri ödülü almasına rağmen onların bayağı bir gerisinde kalmış. O iki filme göre daha saçma bir konu, daha vasat diyaloglar ama daha sert göndermeler hakim. Yinede çok başarılıydı bu film.)

  4. Azer Suat Tatlı's rating of the film Songs from the Second Floor

    must watch- one of my favorites

  5. Śākyamuni's rating of the film Songs from the Second Floor

    Più che un film apocalittico, è già oltre l'apocalisse, perché essa viene svuotata, catatonizzata, (di)scaricata. Zombie consapevoli di essere tali. La non-morte di un'umanità (in)termina(bi)le. Una marcia funebre circolare, quasi teatrale. Uno show spento in cui è presente un aspetto pragmatico del non-esserci, del non-essere. Geometria di una vita che non esplode, ma collassa in una profondità di campo disarmante.

  6. klofter's rating of the film Songs from the Second Floor

    Extraordinary. Stunning. Warrants several viewings to really get all the intricacies, but the film grabs one at a visceral level and never lets go. A singular viewing experience, enjoyable and disturbing at the same time - but above all: a indelible piece of cinema.

  7. Buck Naked's rating of the film Songs from the Second Floor

    I like strange surreal films, I love Buñuel and Jodorowski or films like "Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom" or "The Lobster", but I think "Songs from the Second Floor" is just a bore. There are a few great scenes, but it was really unappealing to me, not my style.

  8. AVA's rating of the film Songs from the Second Floor

    Skurril,einfach,mit Tiefgang.

  9. OrfgenT's rating of the film Songs from the Second Floor

    Großartig & intelligent, wie auch der Spätere "Eine Taube...". Einzigartiges Szenen-Arrangement & Bildaufbau - mal traurig, mal lustig, mal beängstigend. Ich liebe die Szenen mit Gesang in Anderssons Filmen!/Great & intelligent, as well as later "A pigeon...". Scene-arrangement & image-structure are unique - sometimes sadly, sometimes funnily, sometimes frightening. I love the scenes with singing in Anderssons films!

  10. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Songs from the Second Floor

    The movie is far from being perfect but some scenes are really haunting and deserve to stay in the annals of Movie History. Strongly recommended.

  11. wiwitaek's rating of the film Songs from the Second Floor

    It's the third times I watched Roy Andersson, every one of them is brilliant and his movies are deserve a lot more attention!

  12. David Sindmark Hörnfeldt's rating of the film Songs from the Second Floor

    The best swedish film of the new millenium, easily. I think it may only be beat as the greatest Swedish film of all time by Fanny & Alexander.

  13. Christopher McQuain's rating of the film Songs from the Second Floor

  14. B o g d a n's rating of the film Songs from the Second Floor

  15. Egoisms's rating of the film Songs from the Second Floor

    Like Playtime it transcends and redefines cinema. A masterpiece.

  16. lndah's rating of the film Songs from the Second Floor

    Somebody should have drawn a curve of nihilism just to know in what level does it incline to be a good laugh 'cause This is brilliant.

  17. Sydney Burdick's rating of the film Songs from the Second Floor

    Directing style is unbelievably captivating!

  18. Bernardo Crastes's rating of the film Songs from the Second Floor

    Certainly more linear than, let's say, You the Living, but that doesn't make this movie more understandable than the former. Despite having truly transcendent moments, the desolate atmosphere is just too somber. There's not much comical or emotional relief, expected in such a surreal movie. Great stories, though.

  19. Hollywood Overdose's rating of the film Songs from the Second Floor

    The allegory of a kafkaesque world: people hitting themselves in the street (a mechanized society spreading suffer); a magician who can't entertain (a society which cannot distract); an airport filled with more luggage than people (materialism of wealth); a poetry man in the asylum (the silent of a world deprived from arts); and a man who blames fate surrounded by Jesus leaving his conscious in the purgatory.

  20. kowalski's rating of the film Songs from the Second Floor

    tolle kunst mit anspruch ist es, ja, aber kein echter filmfilm

  21. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Songs from the Second Floor

    When his stuff is working, it's a gift.

  22. Terry_Moby's rating of the film Songs from the Second Floor

    Very special. A live cartoon about the constraints of modern life and... the purgatory... sort of ...

  23. Daniel Roque's rating of the film Songs from the Second Floor

    It takes time to fully understand what's going on with these people - spoiler alert - they're all living in constant misery and grief. The subtle satire to society and capitalism arises from these everyday misadventures in pastel shades, ready to make you laugh but surely strong enough to punch you right in the stomach. Realistic surrealism, can't describe it better.

  24. Royce Jr.'s rating of the film Songs from the Second Floor

    Like it or not, you gotta admit this guy has talent in frame-staging
