About the Movie
"At the center of Chantal Akerman's enormous body of work is her mother, a Holocaust survivor who married and raised a family in Brussels. In recent years, the filmmaker has explicitly depicted, in videos, books, and installation works, her mother's life and their own intense connection to each other. No Home Movie is a portrait by Akerman, the daughter, of Akerman, the mother, in the last years of her life. It is an extremely intimate film but also one of great formal precision and beauty, one of the rare works of art that is both personal and universal, and as much a masterpiece as her 1975 career-defining Jeanne Dielman, 23, quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles." -New York Film Festival, Film Society of Lincoln Center

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: If you let it, "No Home Movie" invites you in first with its intimacy and then its deep feeling.
Fresh: It's an exceptionally challenging and enigmatic work, especially for Akerman neophytes, but there's an intimacy to it that's occasionally startling.
Fresh: Akerman ... is her own best spokesperson as she discusses her films at locations where they were shot.
Fresh: The combination of memoir and abstraction is both cerebral and heartrending.
