Tomorrow We Move

The mercurial Chantal Akerman returns to her antic mode with this heady genre mix of bedroom farce (without sex), musical (without songs), and screwball comedy (with screwballs aplenty). After the death of her husband, the charmingly ditzy Aurore Clement moves in with her chain-smoking, intellectual writer daughter (the incomparable Sylvie Testud). The erotically clueless Testud, surrounded by superfluous furniture, tries her hand at writing porn, while exasperated affection between mother and daughter hangs as thick in the air as the black smoke pouring from the household's dysfunctional vacuum cleaner. They decide to move, and soon their new duplex is invaded by crowds of plumbing-inspecting Parisian house hunters—ephemeral roommates who claim instantaneous intimacy with the two women in a dizzying choreography of entrances and exits. In French with subtitles. 111 min.
