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.
