"Je, Tu, Il, Elle"
("I, You, He, She")
Directed by Chantall Akerman
first feature moves like a process or a journey, most likely one from youth into
adulthood. Akerman stars as the protagonist of the film, whom we first discover in her
apartment compulsively eating raw sugar, reading aloud and rearranging her furniture. She
hits the road and after various misadventures finds herself at the home of a woman she
loves. The heavy silence underscores themes of estrangement and alienation. With Niels
Arestrup and Claire Wauthion. French with English subtitles.
