“An unflinching portrait of the mundanity of middle-aged womanhood, JEANNE DIELMAN, 23, QUAI DU COMMERCE, 1080 BRUXELLES was subversive from the start.” - Roxana Hadadi, Crooked Marquee
“Akerman forges a major statement, not only in a feminist context but also in a way that tells us something about the lives we all live.” - Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
Hypnotic, meticulous and methodical, the daily routine and chores of a middle-aged widow are studied in Akerman’s singular and astonishing masterpiece.
