  • Songs from the Second Floor

    2000. Sweden/Norway/Denmark. Directed by Roy Andersson. With Lars Nordh, Stefan Larsson, Bengt C. W. Carlsson, Torbjörn Fahlström. In a glorious return from his prolonged hiatus from filmmaking following the 1975 flop Giliap, Andersson won the Grand Jury Prize in Cannes for this magnificent third feature. Consisting of sixty vignettes, all produced by his own studio, the film takes the audience on a journey through a post-industrial, post-religious society in a seemingly constant state of purgatory—a society Andersson alternately blesses and rebukes. In Swedish; English subtitles. 98 min.
