STAFF PICK: LES RENDEZ-VOUS D’ANNA (ANNA’S MEETINGS)
September 19 only
Luz’ Staff Pick!
A can’t miss film in the female filmmaker canon. In one of Akerman’s most penetrating character studies, Anna, an accomplished filmmaker (played by Aurore Clément), makes her way through a series of European cities to promote her latest movie. In each place she either already has some intimate connection, or readily makes one. People seem drawn to her, but inevitably insist on sharing their inmost secrets and discontents with her, despite her obvious and profound lack of interest in these revelations. This does not deter Anna from continuing to meet people, and she genuinely connects with them occasionally, as when she sees her mother briefly in Brussels. Via a succession of eerie, exquisitely shot, brief encounters—with men and women, family and strangers—we come to see her emotional and physical detachment from the world.
Directed by Chantal Akerman. DCP. France. 127 min. French with English subtitles.
