ABOUT THE FILM
The number one movie on the 2022 Sight and Sound “Greatest Films of All Time” list, Jeanne Dielman is a singular blend of feminism, modernism, and the avant-garde whose hypnotic rhythms and rigorous attention to detail make for a riveting, unforgettable experience.
In a small apartment in Brussels lives Jeanne Dielman (Delphine Seyrig), a middle-aged widow, mother, homemaker, and prostitute whose existence is dominated by routine – the preparation of meals, the running of errands, visits from her clients, and evenings with her teenage son Sylvain (Jan Decorte) – until the cracks start to show.
“A feminist masterwork of minimalist constraint; a cinematic powerhouse of narrative innuendo: (director) Chantal Akerman’s pièce de résistance.” – Todd Haynes
