Demain on Déménage (Tomorrow We Move)
Thursday 17th September, 7.00pm
Once they have at last agreed to keep on living together but to look for a more spacious apartment, a raggle-taggle band of potential buyers arrive. Doors open and close and rooms get very crowded indeed, as in Feydeau farce, until Charlotte finds herself an office and gets on with her work
Akerman has often dealt with the vicissitudes of mother/daughter relationships. She has also made comedies about writer's block, about the distractions of noises and about the appeal of rebellion in the face of insufferable constraint.
No doubt this is a film without many admirers in the mainstream critical community, yet a decidedly French comedic surface overlays a study of Akerman’s abiding themes.
Cast: Sylvie Testud, Aurore Clément, Jean-Pierre Marielle, Natacha Régnier, Lucas Belvaux
