You The Living
Set in a décor of a miserable colourless nowhere-town, You The Living follows the lives of an overweight woman, a disgruntled psychiatrist, a heartbroken groupie, a carpenter, a business consultant, an elementary school teacher with emotional issues and her rug selling husband. Anderson spent three years on the set that was completely built for the film. This tragicomic story that explores the “grandeur of existence” is reminiscent of the Buster Keaton and Jaques Tati films.
