Les rendez-vous d’Anna

(Chantal Akerman, 1978)

New Restoration

While promoting her new project on a trip from Cologne to Paris, a Belgian filmmaker named Anna (Aurore Clément) encounters a series of people—both strangers and family members—with whom she shares brief but intense interludes. Akerman explores her character’s inability to connect with the world around her as even intimate moments such as an abruptly ended one-night stand with a male schoolteacher or the revelation of a recent lesbian tryst to her mother appear not to move her. (127 mins., 2K DCP)

 

"The elegant, odd beauty of 'Les rendez-vous d’Anna' is its refusal to fit into any generic or political parameters; like its wandering protagonist, it’s unattached and searching."
