Recently voted the greatest movie ever made in the BFI’s decennial poll, Chantal Akerman’s masterpiece is a singular work that meticulously details, with a sense of impending doom, the daily routine of a middle-aged widow (Delphine Seyrig) — whose chores include making the beds, cooking dinner for her son, and turning the occasional trick. Akerman’s film seems simple, but it encompasses an entire world. Whether seen as an exacting character study or one of cinema’s most hypnotic depictions of space and time, this is an astonishing, compelling movie. (Belgium/France, 1975, 201min., In French with English subtitles, NR | Dir. Chantal Akerman)
