  1. saitosouta's rating of the film La Pointe Courte

    În acest film de debut al regizoarei Agnes Varda, există elemente documentare care descrie realitatea unui sat idilic de pescari și discursuri limbute despre dragoste de către un bărbat și o femeie, dar aceste două nu se potrivesc. Varda e splendidă pentru că l-a făcut cînd a fost 25 de ani, totuși.// アニエス・ヴァルダのデビュー長編である本作において、のどかな漁村の現実を描いたドキュメンタリー要素と、男と女の愛についての冗長な対話が共生している。しかし2つがマッチしていない。25歳でこれを作ったヴァルダは凄いが。

  3. Mimic Hootings's rating of the film La Pointe Courte

    The dialogue given to the professional actors is occasionally grating, yet the contrast between those scenes and the ones featuring non-professionals is the heart of the film. Varda's mastery of composition is already evident. A lovely film.

  5. P D Dawson's rating of the film La Pointe Courte

    Varda's first feature film is a tour de force in character-driven, naturalistic style filmmaking, that has an edge to it with the long camera takes & interesting angles & setups. The story is of two lovers quarrelling over whether or not they still love each other, & of fishermen battling with the authorities over what they can and cannot catch. All told this is an atmospheric wonderland, both timeless & magical.

  10. SpacePirate's rating of the film La Pointe Courte

    Varda and Resnais working on the same film? How could it fail? A proto-new wave film about poor lower class fisherman life but mixed with some martial drama as well. Interesting plot and a unique film overall, from camera shots, pacing, etc. A standard bearer and must see for fans of Chabrol, Godard, Truffaut, Resnais. 4.5 stars

  11. FISCHER's rating of the film La Pointe Courte

    Premier long métrage d'Agnès Varda qui révèle déjà une forte personnalité... www.cinefiches.com

  12. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film La Pointe Courte

    Agnès Varda's debut film is absolutely stunning!

  13. Stefan Drees's rating of the film La Pointe Courte

    The camera work with its slow and tender movements is magnificent. I also liked the symbolic structuring of the visuals related to the couple (underlined by Pierre Barbaud's slighlty artificial score) and its contrast to the sequences related to the everyday life of the villagers (with use of folk music tunes). And you can see that Agnès Varda loves cats...

  16. kinotopia's rating of the film La Pointe Courte

    we follow two thirty-something schlubs, of course overcome by ennui, as they laze and bicker about a beach town.

  17. katerpink's rating of the film La Pointe Courte

    The first movie Varda made and the first I've seen. I'm impressed by the realistic view. Mixing personal behaviour (the married couple) with social behaviour (the fishermen and the villagers). A lot of cats :)

  18. ovimovi's rating of the film La Pointe Courte

    Well, one thing's for sure. There are a lot of cats in this movie. And somehow they complete the beauty of the scenery.

  21. C's rating of the film La Pointe Courte

    This loopholes and elisions film people come up with to act as though this wasn't the starting point and inspiration for so much that came after it sure is something.

  22. El Biffo's rating of the film La Pointe Courte

    The first Nouvelle Vague was made by a woman, 5 years before Truffaut and Godard. Agnes Varda gave birth to the French New Wave at age 25. La Pointe Courte gets better with every viewing.

  23. aaa88's rating of the film La Pointe Courte

    Beautiful images. Too many chatter.

  24. ashbash's rating of the film La Pointe Courte

    Wonderful snapshot of a time and place in time. the fishermens story is most relevant to the situation our planet finds it self in now with toxicity and dwindling food sources and survival. Just loved the style of this film. Rather more an ethnobiographical-docu-drama.A beautifuly crafted dual narrative handled with great subtlty.Very worth while.
