This was like a series of still photographs that just happened to have sound and motion associated with them. The camera never moved in any scene. The kitchen, the hallway, the entrance, and all other scenes not only had a static camera position but the same position was used each time a scene took place in that location. It seemed exactly right for the theme of the movie.

Unlike anything you have ever seen. The minimalist dialogue and focus on the actors movement showcase what film is capable of when freed from the profit motive.
Intriguingly weird . . .
I caught this movie in the middle and was entranced by the weirdness of the film's focusing on the way she did her housework. I find it odd that I found this interesting but then I liked "Eraserhead". I would like to watch this from the start and hope TCM plays it again. Some scenes were too long like when she was sitting near her stove at the kitchen table "zoning out". Not for everyone but only those who like this kind of movie, which I do.

This Movie....totally unexpected mind blower!

The minute details of this woman's day to day life bordered on the OCD, but I saw her pain immediately. The sparse conversation between her and her son, the love she had for him, taking care of him was her focus. But she was clearly detached from everything except making dinner. Her peeling the potatoes, I thought I was going to scream!! The way she kept eating her soup, steady spoonfuls with no break. The smile on her face as she ate. Her only pleasure. I was captivated to keep watching, hoping for some real happiness to come into her life. Her unraveling as the completion of routine tasks like buttoning her bathrobe, or washing the tub out...the folding of clothes, paper, foil, she was so systematic at first...but even those little things were becoming a struggle. I was shocked at the ending...but not surprised. The acting was excellent...hard to keep the body language, the facial expressions consistent from beginning to end. Would love to see the out takes of this film.

Despite little dialogue for 3 1/2 hours, I really enjoyed this film. I found myself mesmerized and watch the entire movie. Unfortunately, fell asleep during the last 18 minutes. That's why I am here on this site, to see what happened.
