Jeanne Dielman, 23, Quai du Commerce 1080 Bruxelles ★★★★

74


Just like the routine of Jeanne, we are forced to suffer the monotony of this film. I’m not saying that as a bad thing or a knock against this film, but I think that the life of our protagonist and the film viewing experience itself go hand in hand. This movie is most definitely a chore, just like the chores Jeanne completes throughout. It is also long and drawn-out, just like Jeanne’s daily tasks. I would never call this film entertainment, but it is a fascinating memento of our past that should be cherished for years to come.
