I saw this first movie by Ackerman on french channel Arte and I was fascinated by its simplicity of conception and execution. Ackerman gives a wonderfully quiet example of small, no-budget, private short movie which can be a lesson for any young and new student of movie or anyone with a nice passion( but not much means) for film-making and recording the globe with a camera. young Ackerman plays in the movie and from the first mins you receive the mood and the means together as the soundtrack of the movie is solely composed of constant humming of some tune by -supposedly- the main hero who is a lonely woman living in an apartment. This is one of the most ingenious approaches to the composition of movie melody I have ever heard! and you wonder if it has been repeated again. We follow the woman entering the building, up the stairs and into her tiny kitchen and very later realize that we will only see HER. She keeps humming and even makes appropriate noises when attending to things in the kitchen. The obsession with the kitchen leaves one wondering " Can a kitchen really drive someone mad?". Here domestic life of a lonely girl seems like an unbearable and crushing prison with no hope of redemption( a theme that Ackerman returns to it soon with nice force). When the women cooks and cleans and gradually makes a mess of everything you receive a comical view of quiet breakdown rarely seen. Fixed camera position is in accord with a claustrophobic mood and also relates to a documentary style camera which the movie emulates to some extent. This is a movie about what we may -and usually will- call domestic hell ,though it never loses sight of intrinsic humor of the situation. I love Ackerman's performance and her determination to be a filmmaker, standing on her own feet and making an amateur movie a must-see.
It's interesting to search out that the movie that made Chantal Akerman wish to create movies was Pierrot le fou (she talks about it on an interview from the Criterion collection, simple to search online); she was 15, didn't think movies were art and only knew vaguely of the 'auteur' theory. Like for many future filmmakers, Godard blew up all the notions for what a movie should look like or be, and a film like Pierrot is one that I'd imagine would strike up a 15 year old's imagination. Thus we have her first film, English game 'Blow Up My Town', and it's both a tribute (at the end) to Pierrot, while also being an unintentional use run for Jeanne Dielman, her 1975 masterpiece.This is very... student film-y. It sounds shallow to described it that way, but that's what this is. It's following a young girl (Akerman plays the girl) who comes to her apartment, puts away some groceries, cooks noodles, and proceeds to tape her door and windows in so she can... clean, and eat, and then shine her shoes and dance a little. It has no concrete story, and I'm sure Akerman would've been horrified if it had any conventional storyline to it. It's a portrait of a young girl coming undone, but in a method that is type of playful - the sound results emphasize this, with a type of 'la-la' singing from time to time, this couched between some intentionally awkward unique results - but not much more.I did play watching it, but for what it was: a glimpse into what a filmmaker wants to discover in about 10 minutes. Its ending is type of low - is there no another method than how this woman is going to go out - but I liked how rough and odd it was. It's a great tiny short that finds someone at 18 trying out this thing named movie equipment on something that can be done easily: take an apartment (I wonder if it was Akerman's own) and just have some wonky, self-indulgent expression into female boredom, alienation and anxiety. 6.5/10
After having seen "Jeanne Dielman", I can clearly see how nice of a filmmaker Chantal Akerman is, and, although I disliked this film, I'm still highly interested in her another works. However, this is one of the worst movies I've seen recently.Yes, it was her first film, so I shouldn't be too angry, of course. She made it at only the age of 18, so I probably shouldn't be expecting "Citizen Kane", but it was still a pain to sit through! It felt pretentious, nonsensical, and, overall, the movie was really annoying. Actually I'm sure there's folks out there telling I didn't receive it, and that I could never watch Chantal Akerman's work because of my views on this, but, there is not necessarily any current meaning here. With "Jeanne Dielman", folks (including myself) can create variety of theories and such on the film. I mean, it is a movie that has been analyzed time and time again! Here, I just don't see anything!I don't know, maybe I'm stupid, but it seems like this isn't a very nice film.
