30 hand picked films. A new one every day
After doing a fiction film about Jacques’ childhood (Jacquot de Nantes), my idea was to make a documentary—a relatively objective one—about Jacques Demy, as an adult and a filmmaker. —Agnès Varda
A very sweet - in a very Varda way - rambling documentary about Demy's work. Plenty of interesting anecdotes, particularly about Jim Morrison hanging out on the set of PEAU D'ANE and harrison ford about MODEL SHOP.
Precise and resourceful. Varda's manner of coiling conversation with applicable footage is a wonderful trait of her documentary cinema.
80/100 - Great.
I love Varda's lightness of touch, her sense of humour and tenderness. I feel like I got to know more about her than Jacques Demy in this film, which is fine by me.
A lovely tribute from a wife to her deceased husband.
Who else can do what Agnes does?
a perfect world :3
I wish more more people knew about Demy. Wonderful director, phenomenal movies.
A beautiful hommage to one of my favorite directors made by his wife who was probably his equal.
