In Élégie de la traversée, Sokurov crosses vast terrain, sails the high seas, and stumbles through congested cities to arrive at the doors of the empty Boijmans Museum in Rotterdam. Only then does he discover that the goal of his voyage was to bask in the power of St. Mary's Square, a beautiful landscape by Peter Saenredam. In Rober, schastlivai͡a zhiznʹ, the director meditates on the work of French romantic artist Hubert Robert, whose paintings of lost ruins evoke the same nostalgia and lyricism of Sokurov's own moody films

Du Levande

Loading...
"You the living: Hypnotic and darkly humorous, Roy Andersson's You, the living is a uniquely Scandinavian take on the absurdities of life. Expertly shot and whimsically written, You, the living traces a series of bizarre, deadpan and comic vignettes which wryly address the meaning (or lack thereof) of life. Visually striking, strangely hilarious, utterly surreal and fantastical in its execution, You, the living is sure to be an instant cult classic.
