The Meetings of Anna ★★★★★

Precisely crafted and confidently constructed, Les rendez-vous d'Anna arranges a series of key moments over a weekend with the main character. Deliberately avoiding a traditional dramatic structure and cutting out less significant scenes, it follows the emotional journey of the main character in unfamiliar spaces as she connects or doesn't connect with people. There is so much that is going on in the film within the precisely composed frames and long takes and it's always remarkable to immerse myself in the emotional and solitary worlds that Akerman creates.
