a clock without hands, that's my kind of thing.
internet itself is a huge, global field of gleaning, with vaguely legal moves in its territory. is it 5 kilos of oysters, is it 7GB of information? what would be poor's hedonism without youtube concerts, pirate flicks and sounds, online galleries and windows cracks?
excellent documentary. what is impressive is how in this period of her career varda is becoming more and more the star of her films, inserting herself and her own life into her films. she feels at one with the subjects of the film and it is clear she is, her obsession with sequences fits with this documentary and all her films. she even begins to look at her own old age and mortality too without sentimentalising.
A very interesting and kind of delightful documentary. It's about gleaners in many forms-homeless people that pick fruits and vegetables after the harvest to people who do it just for fun etc. The director's narration is very laid back and great. She goes into some existential themes which compliment the material quite well .It's not the best documentary ever made but it's worth a look.
