132 / 35

The movement and arrangement of elements (figures, images, bits of music, references, edits, lines of dialogue, everyday objects, stretches of time) in a Claire Denis film has no real precedent. The closest thing, I think, is the movement and arrangement of instrumental voices in a late Beethoven string quartet. 35 Rhums reminds me of the 3rd movement of the 15th. It's a film in A minor, both molto adagio and andante.
