Friday Night (Vendredi Soir)

Frenchie filmmaker Claire Denis (Chocolat, Beau Travail, Trouble Every Day) helms this deliberately-paced romantic drama about a young woman who packs her belongings and walks out on her lover. Immediately, she gets stuck in a huge Parisian traffic jam (which takes up a Weekend-sized chunk of the film). Bored and curious, our heroine picks up a handsome pedestrian. Despite the fact that they hardly say anything to one other, the two soon find themselves drifting toward an anonymous affair. The film is dreamy, tender and obsessed with detail, but (like an awful lot of foreign films of late) extremely slow. In French with English subtitles. 90 minutes
