Chantal Akerman's first film prefigures the most progressive aspects of her later work. Akerman (1950, Brussels) herself plays a young woman who finds a new solution to the problem of housework. The whimsical nature of the story is rendered serious by the quality of the claustrophobic framing and the oblique camera angles. (Pacific Film Archive)
