Product Details


Chantal Akerman's My Mother Laughs is a shattering memoir about her octogenarian mother's final years and an intimate companion piece to her documentary on the same subject, 2015's No Home Movie.--Film Comment
My Mother Laughs [is] a memoir in the form of a poetic musing on the inevitability of death and the difficulty of letting loved ones go.--Alex Greenberger "ARTnews "
Just as Chantal Akerman's films linger on objects and people, her final book My Mother Laughs (2019) - recently published in the US by The Song Cave - lingers on the daily stresses of caretaking for her dying mother and interpersonal family anxieties.--Steven Zultanski "Frieze "
My Mother Laughs may be Akerman's most interior, psychological work. It's one final message from the artist, illuminating the mottled effect her mother had on her life and creativity.--Tanner Tafelski "Hyperallegic "
[My Mother Laughs is] a reminder that Akerman's voice was utterly unique.--Christopher Schobert "The Film Stage "
"My Mother Laughs," the last complete book by the director Chantal Akerman, is full of whats and hows and whys that linger unanswerably in the memory.--Jackson Arn "Forward "
a heart-wrenching read... with Akerman's words transitioning unmarked into those of the other (always female) key figures in the book: her mother, sister, lover.--Daniel Witkin "Brooklyn Rail "
