Chantal Akerman tribute (is in oktober overleden)

“The Belgian director Chantal Akerman fills her movies with patterns and textures of ordinary life, the stuff other films never even notice. The most extreme and best-known incarnation of her cinema of the everyday remains her second feature, “Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles” (1975), a three-hour-15-minute drama that manages to extract dread and suspense from the monotonous daily routine of a Brussels housewife.” (The New York Times)

“A classic of both feminist and experimental filmmaking, Chantal Akerman’s marathon dissection of the life of Belgian housewife/mother/prostitute Jeanne Dielman (Delphine Seyrig) stays on the surface of the details of Jeanne’s humdrum daily life, as if it were a real-life, real-time documentary of an ordinary life, in the tradition of Agnès Varda’s earlier New Wave landmark, Cleo From 5 to 7 (1961). Jeanne feeds her son, fixes potatoes, does the marketing, entertains gentlemen — but things slowly, almost imperceptibly start to go wrong, first those potatoes, and then, finally, something more shocking.” (Rotten Tomatoes)
