HANNAH

2017, ANDREA PALLAORO, ITALY/FRANCE/BELGIUM, 95 MIN. WITH CHARLOTTE RAMPLING, ANDRÉ WILMS.

First Chicago run!

“This is indeed a director to watch…An exceedingly quiet movie, and at the same time a bracing one, with a volatile, superstar performance at its heart.” — Michael Sicinski, Cinema Scope

“HANNAH frames an indelible performance with a distinctly formal eye.” — Bill Stamets, Chicago Sun-Times

Charlotte Rampling (45 YEARS, UNDER THE SAND) continues her late-career resurgence with a performance of mesmerizing subtlety, but this haunting character study is more than just a showcase for a great actress at the top of her game. Director Pallaoro has described his film as an “existential giallo,” referring to the genre of gaudy Italian stalker films, but the watchword here is restraint not flamboyance, and the threats bedeviling the heroine are invisible and internal. Hannah (Rampling) is a bourgeois Brussels woman fighting a lonely battle to keep her life together in the wake of a devastating disruption. The nature of that disruption is gradually (but never completely) revealed to us as we follow Hannah through the routines — cathartic acting lessons, laps at the swimming pool, a humbling job as a housekeeper — that she doggedly clings to, even as they are progressively stripped away. Pallaoro depicts Hannah’s struggle in an evocatively precise style that has earned comparisons to Chantal Akerman and Michael Haneke, creating a precarious, richly textured angstscape (filmed in 35mm) of reflections, peripheral sounds, and off-center widescreen frames. In French and English with English subtitles. DCP digital widescreen.
