Du levande

Sweden 2007 | Colour | 93 mins | Cert 15 | Comedy | Drama

Cast: Elisabet Helander, Jugge Nohall, Jan Wikblad

A succession of fifty tragic-comic vignettes from modern life, You, the Living is about the human being, about her greatness and her miserableness, her joy and sorrow, her self-confidence and anxiety. A being at whom we want to laugh and also cry for. It is simply a tragic comedy or a comic tragedy about us.

– Roy Andersson

'Be pleased then, you the living, in your delightfully warmed bed, before Lethe´s ice-cold wave will lick your escaping foot'

– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Römische Elegien
