Chantal Akerman, No Home Movie
(2015) Belgium, 1hr 55mins, French, English subtitles, cert PG
£5 (£3) | Booking advised

With a reading from Akerman’s My Mother Laughs (Silver Press, 2019)

Chantal Akerman’s final film is deeply poignant: a documentary still-life study of her elderly mother, Nelly Akerman, a Holocaust survivor born in Poland. Akerman was intensely close to her, and the film is a moving tribute to her mother, still active, but fragile. In the film Nelly is shown living in her modest Brussels apartment. There are long, static shots of her pottering from room to room, or chatting with Chantal herself, in person or on Skype. Peter Bradshaw has said: ‘The title itself is ambiguous: it is no conventional home movie… In its stillness and mystery, it offers careful transcription of the textures of a life.
