Baxter, Vera Baxter (1977)

Marguerite Duras directs Delphine Seyrig, Noëlle Châtelet and Nathalie Nell in this arthouse bore where a series of stilted, repetitive conversations about a villa being up for rent and an absent husband’s infidelities are drowned out by a looping instrumental ditty.

Interminable. I only read a third of the later subtitles. I’m thinking of cancelling my MUBI subscription if this is the best they’ve offered up in 10 days!
