One of the most distinctive voices in the recent wave of superb British female directors (Lynne Ramsay, Sophie Fiennes, Clio Barnard, Andrea Arnold), Hogg (Archipelago) specialises in placing the middle-class psyche under a microscope.
Here she focuses on artist couple H (Gillick) and D (Albertine, formerly of legendary punk band The Slits), whose decision to sell their elaborate London home provides a lens onto the workings of their long and complicated relationship.
Shot in Hogg’s characteristic sustained, wide takes, and acted with astonishing candour, this is a profoundly engaging exercise in intellectual second-guessing as the characters keep their emotions all but completely in check.
It’s also a stylish take on the single-location drama, in which the framing and editing match the architectural minimalism of a house full of clues to its inhabitants’ inner lives.
