The film follows Jeanne through three consecutive days her her life as small fractures begin to appear in Jeanne's carefully regimented daily routines and rituals.
There is one thing I can say about Jeanne that is a valid criticism concerning the slow cinema genre in general: compared to Satantango and Stalker, Jeanne Dielman isn't doing much to capture the visual artistry which often goes hand in hand with the themes.
