Chantal Akerman was one of the most distinctive voices in Belgian cinema. Her acutely observed, landmark feminist epic stars the incredible Delphine Seyrig as Jeanne. A widow for six years, Jeanne maintains a strict household routine. She cooks, cleans, shops and entertains a gentleman caller each afternoon to support herself and her teenage son. Akerman captures the precise, minute details of her unvarying life over three days, conveying the facade she has carefully created, the stultifying boredom she feels and the growing pressure for something to change.
