Hämta en cykel Hämta en cykel (1968)  - Short Film
Summary: 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. (MoMA)
