No Home Movie ★★★★½

This is a very sad film, and not just due to Akerman's suicide a few months after its release. No Home Movie feels to me like the natural successor to News From Home, just updated for the modern world: the house is empty and we feel her mother's absence so strongly through the images presented. All that's left to remember Maman by are fragments of communication: letters (in News From Home) or digital video footage. It's also all we have to commemorate Akerman herself.
