    Sit down I’m very sorry, I’m trying to get the lighting right. You must understand I’m trying to get the lighting right.

    Jeanne Dielman, 23, Quai du Commerce 1080 Bruxelles

    ★★★★★

    With Jeanne Dielman, we don’t really get a sense of character, but we gather a complex, almost thorough understanding of systems of behaviour. It’s the pattern, the routine, the schedule that makes Dielman’s presence felt.

    If we slowly let ourselves be settled into the prescriptiveness and orderliness of Dielman’s life, any kind of break from that pattern can feel almost imposing and hostile. Even the slightest Irregularity or kink in her demeanour sets the structure loose and makes it collapse…
