Songs From the Second Floor Reviews

April 23, 2004
Let your literal, linear self take a chance on Songs From the Second Floor. Andersson is a philosopher with a brilliant eye for composing his ideas on the big screen.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
April 25, 2003
Like an Ingmar Bergman movie as realized by Monty Python: It's seriously gloomy about the loss of spirituality in the world, but at the same time rudely, sometimes hilariously, absurd.

October 31, 2002
A brilliant, absurd collection of vignettes that, in their own idiosyncratic way, sum up the strange horror of life in the new millennium.

Depressive, slow, darkly funny, unyielding in its formal rigor, and unsettlingly beautiful.

Strange, funny, twisted, brilliant and macabre.
July 10, 2002
This is wild surreal stuff, but brilliant and the camera just kind of sits there and lets you look at this and its like you're going from one room to the next and none of them have any relation to the other.

A devastating indictment of unbridled greed and materalism.

July 2, 2002
Easier to respect than enthuse over, Andersson's rigorous personal vision is not only distanced but distancing.
July 1, 2002
At once wickedly funny and deeply disturbing, Andersson's deadpan, apocalyptic tone poem conjures up an exquisitely hermetic vision of mankind at the final buzzer.

A deliciously nonsensical comedy about a city coming apart at its seams.
