France | 2019 | Agnès Varda, Didier Rouget
The final work by the late, great filmmaker who was the only distaff director associated with the French New Wave is a characteristically playful, profound, and personal summation of her own brilliant career. At once impish and wise, Varda acts as our spirit guide on a free-associative tour through her six-decade artistic journey as a photographer, moviemaker, and installation artist. She also offers her one-of-a-kind reflections on everything from filmmaking to feminism to aging. Filled with photos and film clips, and suffused with the people, places, and things she loved—husband Jacques Demy, cats, colors, beaches, heart-shaped potatoes—this wonderfully idiosyncratic work of imaginative autobiography is a warmly human, touchingly bittersweet parting gift from one of cinema’s most luminous talents.
