Jeanne Dielman is immersion cinema, a brilliant example of maximal minimalism that fuses viewer with subject so profoundly, the marathon experience transcends simple spectatorship.

Chantal Akerman's feature is one of the few 'feminist' movies that's as interesting aesthetically as politically.

Jeanne Dielman deals in unadorned facts. It's about the looks and sounds of ordinary things and people, which it records with such... unsettling clarity that it has the effect of finding threats in mundane objects and doom in [the] commonplace.

Akerman forges a major statement, not only in a feminist context but also in a way that tells us something about the lives we all live.

Mesmerizing, everything on the screen helping us follow her routine with a domestic rigor that replaces dramatic structure.

It wouldn't be the first movie I'd recommend to someone, though it is arguably more accessible than Chantal Akerman's other work, and a fine testament to her brilliance.

Maddening masterpiece in which the accumulation and repetition of details pushes a more dry ending than expected. [Full review in Spanish]

Without a doubt, this is a film by a brilliantly talented artist with a rigorous intellect, a formal sophistication, and an emotional empathy astounding for someone her age.

One of the most significant feminist works made, Jeanne Dileman is a masterwork in thematic, aesthetic, and formal-theoretical ways.
