“The physical experience of loneliness. Moving furniture and getting lost in the cycles of time . A journey, a road movie, a kilogram of sugar. Solipsism in writing. She. Miles and words. A truck driver telling his wish, silences, voiceover and monologue overlap. Singular pronouns, a third part that could be the first one. The reunion of two beautiful women. Conjunction: food, warmth , love . Disjunction: not rooted , escape”. Marion Cruza
Chantal Akerman created her first feature film from a text written in 1968.
… If I had shooted it in 1968, then it would have made a film about an anecdote; while the lapse of six years allowed me a staging, in where using myself as an actress was part of it. Chantal Akerman, 1991.
