Finally, eventually, watched the Roy Andersson film, ‘Songs From The Second Floor’ last night. The attention to detail, the sound, light, photography, artwork, tone and direction were stunning and purposefully grotesque. I can’t say enough about the film. I’ve seen ‘You, the Living’ and his short film, ‘World of Glory’ and this is up there with them, if not a couple of floors higher. The set pieces and stillness, the perspective and dialogue all combine to produce a comic and unsettling feature.
