A Weird Little Short Film
3 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

It is a simple, odd, and experimental short film by the great filmmaker Chantal Akerman. So far, this is definitely the best short film by Akerman that I've ever seen, which isn't much of a surprise considering the fact that I disliked the other Akerman shorts that I've seen. That being said, there isn't much to say about this film.

It was pretty good, but there isn't much to talk about. As I said, it is really weird and experimental, and it is very slow paced at times, so if you don't like any of those traits, then this film is clearly not for you, but I enjoyed it. It is a love story, a comedy, and a slow/experimental piece all in just 12 minutes. No, it isn't a perfect piece of filmmaking, but it is still a fun little short film that won't take up too much of your time.
