More than a simple time capsule or city symphony, though it is a glimpse, full of urban ambiance, of bygone places and fashions. It's personalized, a meditation on immigrant condition, of new perspective and growing alienation. Long take heaven.

Completely uninteresting conceptually, unremarkable images and editing.

I admired News from Home. But I don’t think it’s a film we are meant to love. The cumulative effects of the letters from home creates a great sadness, but nonetheless the sameness of the imagery wears on the viewer, so that even at 85 minutes, it feels like it could be shorter. There is great skill behind News from Home, and there is a fairly rigorous display of alienation. But Akerman may have tried too hard to pass that alienation along to the viewer, at least for me.

Perhaps it's my own perspective on the two subjects at hand, the isolation of a big city and the banal but loving closeness of home, but this feels like two great film ideas mashed together rather incongruently, creating something that's still good but noticeably less than the sum of its parts.

Chantal Akerman, at some point moved to New York. While living in New York her mother frequently sent her letter from Brussels. These letters are read by Akerman herself, at the same time that you learn about New York '77 life. New York skyline is growing dimmer gradually until it disappears entirely.

The juxtaposition of sound and image creates striking parallels. The lens invades the lives of unknown citizens, giving us a glimpse of their personal existences but a fleeting one. The letters, meanwhile, seem to provide only minor details but reveal the increasing anxieties of a mother separated from her daughter by an ocean, with only fragments of information to comfort her. The length of the shots and gaps between narrations heighten the viewer's investment in these concerns.
