2 Episodes

For her gorgeous, minutely observed exploration of family bonds 35 SHOTS OF RUM, Claire Denis was inspired by one of Yasujiro Ozu’s most masterful domestic dramas—in which the relationship between a widowed father and his devoted daughter is complicated by the arrival of an attractive young man—to create perhaps her warmest and most tenderly human film to date. Each a delicate emotional balancing act imbued with moments of quiet transcendence, these twin masterpieces convey profound truths with infinite subtlety and grace.
