Personal Shopper

Olivier Assayas
FRA, CZ, DEU 2016
105 min

In Assayas’s PERSONAL SHOPPER, American in Paris Maureen, a supermodel’s fashion assistant who’s also a psychic medium, is wracked with guilt over the death of her twin brother, who succumbed to the same congenital heart condition she herself could die from at any moment. Appropriately, Maureen can feel like a ghostly presence; she wanders through the dilapidated old house she and her brother grew up in, lounges in her boss’s empty apartment when she’s out of town, and occupies the most solitary of train cars. As Maureen clings to her brother’s memory, Assayas collapses the spiritual slipstream that separates her from him, which turns PERSONAL SHOPPER into a kind of ghost story, though exactly in what sense is best to be experienced firsthand; no other film at the Cannes film festival this year has had quite the same shock of the strange as this one. (Sam C. Mac)
