You, the Living

Du levande

Directed by Roy Andersson
Sweden, Germany, 2007
Comedy, Drama, Music
  • Swedish
  • English, German


Made up of 50 criss-crossing vignettes and populated with dozens of characters, You the Living is a unique journey through our permanently askew universe, in all its humor and heartbreak.

Our take

How to describe You the Living? An epic comedy? A whimsical anxiety dream? A jam session between Ingmar Bergman and Monty Python? Touring society top, bottom, and side to side, it’s an illuminating work of dour hilarity—and one of the most acclaimed arthouse films of the 00s.
