Toute une nuit

Chantal Akerman / BE, FR, 1982 / 89 min.

Akermans own midsummer night's sex comedy. Toute une nuit sees Akerman employing her minimalist method to create a maximalist ode to romantic passion and unabashed melodrama. Marrying the pleasure of narrative to the purism of the avant-garde, this is her most accessible film.

This summer, Eye Filmmuseum is presenting a major solo exhibition of work by Chantal Akerman. Akerman was one of the first film directors who made the switch to visual art. She rose to fame in the 1970s as a feminist avant-garde filmmaker, and midway through the 1990s, she discovered the possibilities of the art gallery.
