Charlotte Rampling plays Hannah, an elderly woman whose husband goes to prison for a reason unknown. Finding herself alone with no one but her dog and old apartment whose corners speak volumes of shattered memories and a broken mother’s heart, Hannah spends her time between acting classes and cleaning apartments for money. She tries to find extravert means to express what’s going inside her – and finds in acting classes a chance to express her inner emotions. HANNAH is first and foremost a character study and a reflection on isolation and loneliness. It’s a subtle and mysterious film by design that intentionally does not reveal its character’s backstory but offers us flashes of hints and a remarkable leading performance that presents us with a window to a haunted and tormented soul, even if we don’t really know what actually happened. (Mina Nagy Takla)
