Jeanne Dielman, a widowed housewife, carries out her daily routine with familiarity and precision: she cleans the apartment, goes shopping for provisions, prepares meals for her son and has intercourse with male callers for money. Widely hailed as a masterpiece of modern cinema, Chantal Akerman’s film follows three days in the life of Jeanne (a career-defining performance from Delphine Seyrig), taking neorealism to its extreme so that when tiny cracks begin to appear in her life, their disruption is altogether devastating.
