chantal akerman is starting to be one of my favorite directors. her movies are always narrated in such a tender, melancholic way that hits close to home. this one is breathtaking. i love the train scenes, especially the ones where the train's sounds cover the narration. it's like chantal telling us that in that point of her life, the new, undiscovered city was covering her mother's words, her family's and city's stories that she is not there to live. it was so interesting seeing all these places, understanding how much life can change in just some years. incredible. it made me want to discover the world, travel and do what i want, but never forget to look back, remember that there are people, places and things i love left behind. in awe
