Jeanne Dielman

Jeanne Dielman, 23, quai du commerce, 1080 Bruxelles (Chantal Anne Akerman, 1975) Delphine Seyrig; 202 min.

Seyrig's characters is a cipher, or maybe a metonym is better. Rather than being perceived as a real person (like Emmy Bovary, say) she rather stands for such women, living lives of quiet despair.

When asked about China, Noël Coward said, "It's very large." This film is very long.
