I, You, He, She(CA Retro)
Chantal Akerman’s 1974 first feature revolves around a young woman torn between her existential angst and her yearning desires. Julie writes letters, moves furniture around and gobbles sugar straight from a paper bag as she locks herself inside her barren apartment. Heading out, she hitches a ride with a truck driver (Niels Arestrup) with whom she eats, drinks, talks and shares a moment of intimacy. All this leads to her final stop, as she visits and has passionate sex with an ex-lover (Claire Wauthion). Audacious both in its style and its content, I, You, He, She is a fiery film in which Akerman - who plays the lead character herself - lays her own inner desires and fears for all to see, something which would shape her career for the next four decades.
