Movie Info

No Home Movie is a sober, profoundly moving portrait of the filmmaker's mother Natalia in the months leading up to her death, when she was mostly confined to her Brussels apartment. A Polish Jew who survived Auschwitz, Natalia suffered from chronic anxiety all her life, an affliction that fuelled much of her daughter's creative output and helped shape Akerman's thematic preoccupations with gender, sex, cultural identity, existential ennui, solitude, and mania.

Critic Reviews for No Home Movie

All Critics (32) | Top Critics (7)

Long episodes of helpless tedium interspersed with brief moments of intense heartbreak.

Akerman ... is her own best spokesperson as she discusses her films at locations where they were shot.

May 19, 2016 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

It's almost unbearably sad, but the deep affection and connection Akerman has for her subject thrums through every scene, even the ones in which they speak on Skype, Akerman from different locations around the world.

May 4, 2016 | Full Review…

It's an exceptionally challenging and enigmatic work, especially for Akerman neophytes, but there's an intimacy to it that's occasionally startling.

Top Critic

If you let it, "No Home Movie" invites you in first with its intimacy and then its deep feeling.

March 31, 2016 | Full Review…

There is an element of drama that an audience very familiar with Akerman's work can't help but project on to the pointedly non-eventful footage.
