How could you know? You’re not a woman.

... Chantal Akerman was 25 when she made this movie
25. Just like me.
What the hell?!
The way she filmed it... I loved every shot, I loved the choice to show thoroughly her domestic chores but not when she was having sex (just like an average man would have done), I loved how she runs her home without any sign of gratitude coming from her son, I loved the little details that made us understand that something serious was about to change in her life... and I loved those final, glorious 10 minutes.
Sure, the length was agonizing, but that ending surely made up for it.
