The subject of displacement regularly turns up in Akerman’s films—here in a quirky comedy (which won the French Lumiere Award for Best French-Language Film of 2004) “Story of a mother, who after the death of her husband, comes to live with her daughter with piano, baggage, and furniture in tow. It soon becomes a nightmare of clutter.” The young woman is attempting to write erotic fiction, despite her indifference to sex, and her mother is trying to give her a hand.
