I Don’t Belong Anywhere (2015): Marianne Lambert on Chantal Akerman

A primer for the uninitiated and a welcome review for the most devoted of viewers, I Don’t Belong Anywhere is an impressionistic tour of Chantal Akerman’s varied yet consistently astounding body of work, which-despite constant topical and geographical shifts-consistently lingers on the same essential themes, brought to the fore in candid interviews with Chantal and her long-time editor Claire Atherton.

Shy and humble, but also clearly a force to be reckoned with, Chantal emerges as her film language does, each bit of her process suggesting an additional layer of precision to her work.
