Trailer of the Day: As Long As You’re Healthy

As Long As You're Healthy

Co-written by Jean-Claude Carrière, Étaix fashions four playful vignettes that comically dramatize the anxieties of 20th century life. “Life is tough in the modern era: insomniac Étaix whiles away the night with a book on vampires—then his wife wakes up; no seats at a packed cinema, or they’re blocked or immediately reclaimed—and then the adverts begin: a devastating satire on commercials; shrink Étaix has it rougher than his patients; and the bickering between a picnicking couple and a farmer escalates into hilarious gunfire and electrocution.”—Film Forum (77 mins.)
