Directed by Chantal Akerman | 1986

With Delphine Seyrig, Miriam Boyer, Fanny Cottencon

Chantal Akerman's audacious, exuberant musical—about the romantic ups and downs of young women working in an ultra-stylized soundstage shopping mall—plays like a classic MGM confection filtered through the Jeanne Dielman director's feminist, avant-garde formalism. Oddly catchy New Wave songs, quirky choreography, and a pastel-colored visual palette are among the many delights in one of the filmmaker’s most inventive and daring experiments.
