Agnès Varda's Couplets

Synopsis

A woman is variable. Yet can one be more so than Jane Birkin? In this kaleidoscopic film made of various fictions, during various seasons, she plays various parts including her own. Famous under the name of Jane B., she allowed Agnès V. to film her.

Our take

Our final couplet by Agnès Varda is particularly special: a direct collaboration between the director and actress Jane Birkin, having just recently made the more story-driven 1987’s Le petit amour. This fruitful partnership freely darts and delves into acting, femininity and artistic creation.
