Sånger Från Andra Våningen
Friday 19 November, 6.10pm, Tyneside Cinema
Its the end of the world as we know it. This amazing tale of millennium-eve dystopia is a story about the human need for love and companionship, confusion, and most of all, our inherent vulnerability. Stunningly staged and filmed, rammed with ideas and daring visions, the film is a dark, funny and disturbing poem on the human condition with a beautiful operatic score by none other than ABBAs Benny Andersson. Ravishing, surreal and brilliant, this is quite unlike any other film you will have encountered.
Dir: Roy Andersson, Sweden 2000, 98 mins, Feature Film, Subtitled.
This screening has an introduction by Film Historian Roger Mitchell, as part of the Tyneside Cinemas sell-out Bergman And Beyond course.
