Entertainment Reviews:

Film Comment - 01/01/2010
"[T]he films are rhythmic compositions of sustained time with carefully placed disruptions, and the DVD format allows you to savor the precise sound designs essential to their effects."
A.V. Club - 01/20/2010
"Akerman did the seemingly impossible: She reconciled the extreme minimalism and formal discipline of structural filmmaking with semi-conventional narrative storytelling." -- Grade: B

Product Description:

As a follow-up to the Criterion Collection's prior release of Belgian avant-garde filmmaker Chantal Akerman's JEANNE DIELMAN, 23 QUAI DU COMMERCE 1080 BRUXELLES, this volume in Criterion's Eclipse series presents several of Akerman's features from the 1970s - a critical decade in her career. It begins with several New York-based experimental works, influenced heavily by the cinema of such pioneers as Michael Snow and Yvonne Rainer. These titles include the 11-minute LA CHAMBRE (1972), the 65-minute HOTEL MONTEREY (1972), and the 85-minute NEWS FROM HOME (1976). This collection also includes Akerman's debut feature, 1974 JE TU IL ELLE - a fractured and loosely-knit character study of a woman cascading through life and a series of love affairs. It concludes with the 1978 LES RENDEZ-VOUS D'ANNA, with Aurore Clément as a dissociated young filmmaker touring Europe to promote her latest movie. As with the other volumes in the Eclipse series, this one includes no frills or supplements.
