Fearlessly independent, Akerman mobilized a nearly all-women crew to realize one of the screen’s most profound meditations on and of the female gaze, accruing weeks of real-time filming into an intimate drill-down. Delphine Seyrig is the titular widowed housewife, observed in her day in/day out existence consisting of chores, child-raising, and clients who visit her for sex.
