Up there with Harmony Korine and Micheal Mann in terms of pioneering Digital Cinema. While respectful of film she doesn't waste time with nostalgia and goes all in for the peculiar traits of digital; breaking the 4th wall to explain them and then utilizing them for an exploration on human consumption through examining the state of The Gleaners in the modern consumerist society of France.
If you loved "The Gleaners and I," then you will love this update on the lives of the people who starred in the documentary. It's wonderful to see how their lives have changed and how they have been affected by the attention brought on by the documentary's success. Varda is at her best when she centralizes society's marginalized people.
This is a perfect Vardas-like continuation of Les Glaneurs et la Glaneuse. To do it 2 years later, in the peak of the film's prize momentum and cult-status is almost like producing an anti-sequel. Agnès Vardas is not interested in adding to the cult. She wants to learn what has happened to the people she has met 2 years before. She wants to observe what has happened to her. What did it mean after all? Brave, tender.
Poco interés. Supongo que el éxito del film en Francia la animó a hacer una segunda parte. Remata muy mal con una proclama politica que no se sabe a que cuento viene. Por cierto, manifestarse contra otras opciones politica por poco que te guste (y a la que libremente se puede votar o no) tiene muy poco de democrático. Odio el comunismo pero no entiendo convocar una manifestación en contra. Me basta con no votarles
a great follow up to a great documentary. varda follows to see the reaction to her initial works, while some dislike elements of it and some have changed altogether. plus, varda has more to say on her mortality. some of her images here are visual poetry. and its great to see how at one with these people she is, down to earth sometimes literally. the most loveable auteur i have seen.
