A Couch in New York

Un divan à New York

Directed by Chantal Akerman
Germany, France, 1996


Béatrice, a vibrant Parisian dancer, swaps apartments with Henry, an egoistic Manhattan psychoanalyst. Béatrice settles into Henry’s place with ease, while the doctor has difficulty adjusting to Béatrice’s bustling home, but the mismatch clearly indicates that the two are destined to be together.

A Couch in New York Directed by Chantal Akerman

Critics reviews

The big difference between the great Lubitsch movies and this brave comedy by Akerman is that A Couch in New York, finally, is rather charmless, even a bit forced. . . . But that is Akerman’s gamble here, on many levels: to make a breezy, bright, liberating romantic comedy without the usual charm, without the typical chemistry; without those conventional crutches, or easy ways of securing audience empathy.
