My first Chantal Akerman film and one that has immediately interested in her other work. Love the focus on the overwhelming but beautiful mundanities. A snapshot of 70's New York unfiltered by the time, but rather an encapsulation of it. And with time, the words spoken mean less as they slowly fade away. Might be a minimalist masterpiece.
