Demain on déménage

Chantal Akerman France, 2004

dionysus67's rating of the film Tomorrow We Move

A deceptively simple motif about mother-daughter relationships proves an opportune vehicle for extending the comedy genre in ways that make paradox look more like the real issue than reality itself. Aided by a splendid set design and giving to props and surfaces a tactile visual form, Akerman condenses all sorts of serious issues into the transient spoof of choreographed moves across apartments. Elusively charming.
