Poster for the film 'Songs From the Second Floor', 2000.
'Songs from the Second Floor' is a Swedish black comedy-drama written and directed by Roy Andersson. It presents a series of disconnected vignettes that together interrogate aspects of modern life. The film uses many quotations from the work of the Peruvian poet César Vallejo as a recurring motif. It is the first film in a trilogy, followed by 'You, the Living' (2007) and 'A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence' (2014).
