I find that irony is something that needs to be cultivated, and the few filmmakers who manage to do that are, for me, great masters. Even when she’s telling stories that are far from her own life, all of her films become like beads in a necklace that shines very brightly and decorates her.

A fiction film posing as a lyrical documentary. . . . In the end, Mona’s physical reality is undeniable—her stink, her dirty fingernails, her tangled hair, her disintegrating boots, her struggles to eat and sleep and stay warm—but her character is impenetrable, her motives a mystery.

The best movie that I saw at MdFF, perhaps unsurprisingly, was Vagabond, which upon review seems easily one of the greatest films of the 1980s—funny and unsentimental and unfathomably sad. Watching the conclusion… I thought of some lines from Francois Mauriac’s 1923 novel Génitrix which have always troubled me: "There was no tear-stained face for her to leave behind, nothing to mark for her this slipping into the shadows. She died quietly, as those who are unloved.

  • elif jazel's rating of the film Vogelfrei

    a great masterpiece! a deeply tragic story by Varda. and an amazing acting performance by Bonnaire. Im speechless.

  • El Biffo's rating of the film Vogelfrei

    I like all of Agnes Varda's films, and this, I think is her finest. Sandrine Bonnaire is brilliant, and together they create an eloquent, sensitive portrayal of a true story that would probably have been quickly forgotten if Varda had not made this unforgettable film.

  • dionysus67's rating of the film Vogelfrei

    Gleaning remnants of the French collective unconscious really, Varda's Bressonian journey of despair turns into a chthonic fresco of marginalized types of modern society's output. What is most remarkable is how Varda invests her shots with material volume and thus manages in many a glorious tracking shot and close up to turn Bonnaire's plight into an icon of human suffering. (The 4th wall breaches did not add much.)

  • Ethan's rating of the film Vogelfrei

    Sandrine Bonnaire is nothing short of amazing in this incredible picture from the masterful Agnes Varda. This film is a true work of beauty and it has a certain liberating feel and energy that most films fail to measure up to. Varda's camera not only captures images, it also breathes life into the cinema.

  • Stefan Drees's rating of the film Vogelfrei

    Varda's narration not only appeals through the heartbreaking story (which she tells us without sentimental diversions but embedded in a documentary-like progression) but also through the masterly cinematography: Each shot, each frame is a little gem, in different ways connected with other shots.

  • Rafael Zen's rating of the film Vogelfrei

    Is having nothing the only way of having it all? As Mona, Varda travels through - alleys, abandoned places, abandoned people, all passengers, everything passing by. It's so beautiful how each time somebody tells their version of Mona's freedom, because each one had to leave something behind to be stable. Choosing to build her film on this opposite game, Varda doesn't make a movie, she builds a mirror.

  • Michael H. CLAES's rating of the film Vogelfrei

    Chronique d'une routarde en désocialisation. Oeuvre exigeante et riche. Portrait d'une femme par une femme. Sans toit, ni loi, ni concessions. Un grand VARDA. BONNAIRE crève l'écran. === Chronicle of a backpacker in desocialization. Demanding and rich work. Portrait of a woman by a woman. No roof, no law, no concessions. A great VARDA. BONNAIRE breaks the screen.

  • anarresti's rating of the film Vogelfrei

    Great for a double session with 2014 Wild. Agnès Vardas' film seeks the vestiges of a woman, telling her impossible story through the collected fragments of those who have crossed her path in the weeks, or months leading to her death. A good contrast with the self-defining narratives, like Wild, where the narrator is able to clearly speak from the present looking back, retroactively identifying purpose and meaning.
