Directed by Chantal Akerman in 1975, Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles follows the story of lonely single mother Jeanne as she slowly goes about her business of keeping house. We watch as she methodically cooks, baths, eats with her teenage son and, in the afternoons, works as an occasional prostitute to pay the bills. Akerman’s cinema focuses our attention on her smallest gestures, gestures that reveal character but would be lost in a more flamboyant film
