To Fetch A Bike
Filmfest 2011

A moving colour film that in somewhat sketchy scenes describes the morning activities of a tentative young pair of lovers. Even in this early short, Andersson proved to be a master at portraying the drama of the quotidian. A minimalistic study of waking up on the wrong side of the bed, TO FETCH A BIKE shows two young lovers getting ready for a new day. Before the boyfriend can head to work, he must first fetch his bike from the attic with the help of his genuinely grumpy, monosyllabic girlfriend.
