Holy SHIT this movie. This film is so much more than even everything I heard going into it. Yes, it’s extremely realistic but also the framing and set design give it a sense of theatricality. The way the discussions between her and her son offered thematic context to the entire film, the strange lights outside Jeanne’s apartment giving the film a splash of surrealism, the sheer LENGTH that that final shot held GOD I could go on
