Screen Capture of the Day - Life the Way It Is (1978)
The striking Lisa Heredia, in Life the Way It Is, a dark,French, apartment-block/office comedy from 1978. Though not strictly a horror film, it's riddled with suicide, homicide and crime, and does have a superb Jean Rollin-meets-Little Murders vibe about it. Life the Way it Is (French title: La vie comme ça) also serves as a provocative wedge of human drama, amidst all, or perhaps aided by, its Kafkaesque chaos.
