I just watched the weirdest film. This movie is three hours of a woman doing everyday things like chord and shopping. Very boring. Then at the end she murders somebody. The point is to show that a stereotypical woman's stay at home life is wrong and drives women insane. It was rated the 19th best film of the 20th century on some list. Does anyone else know this movie or have an opinion?

I have not seen the movie myself, but i know it's highly regarded among fans of arthouse cinema.
Plus, there's a Criterion blu-ray edition forthcoming, so that's saying something !

The lead character Jeannie Dielman is played by Delphine Seyrig, who also starred as the Countess Báthory
in Harry Kümel's horror classic Daughters Of Darkness (1971). She sadly passed away in 1990, aged 58.

I give it thumbs down. A surprise ending doesn't make up for a torturous three hours of nothing. Original idea, though.

The premise of this film actually sounds interesting to me. I like independent, arty films. I think this is French. I'll try to watch it at some point soon & if I do, I'll post a review.
