a great short film from varda. she begins many of her great obsessions, from the structure of paris itself to the art of sequences, and links. the poetic power of these images are really very fine too.
A poetic journey through an elusive paradise. Neon bright colours and a relentless sun will leave you stunned. The voice-over, when spoken alternately by two voices, reminded me of the versicle/response pattern during Mass.
The eye for detail is almost unbelievable, yet in the end you are cast out and left with the feeling that all you have witnessed is a fake.
Des jeux de mots, de caméra et de couleurs dans ce poétique documentaire d'une petite demi-heure qui donne envie de (re)découvrir le bleu unique du ciel et de la mer de notre magnifique Côte d'Azur. Cocorico.
A warm, pleasant sojourn along the idyllic Riviera. Lush, sun drenched and nostalgic, if a little staid in its narration and functional, documentary presentation. Very much like flicking through the best snapshots of someone's holiday in paradise.
A poetic infomercial for the french riviera made by Agnes Varda. Reminded me of "A Propos de Nice" with a poetic voice-over. The occasionally beautiful shots are accompanied by a very well written voice-over yet somehow the film did nothing for me.
i don't really understand everyone's excitement about this one. i see that the place or object of this film is cheesy itself but still i was hoping for more. on the other hand, it would be wonderful to see episodes like that about different places on tv (so as a tv reportage it would get four stars or maybe even five)
