Agnès Varda's Couplets


On a rainy day in spring, Mary-Jane, a woman of almost 40, falls in love, or rather slides in love with a boy of nearly 15: Julien, a classmate of her daughter.

Our take

Today we launch Agnès Varda’s Couplets, devoted to the diverse coupling in the equally diverse cinema of this great filmmaker. We begin with the most unusual pair: a mother (pop icon Jane Birkin) and a teen boy (Mathieu Demy, son of Varda and Jacques Demy). Varda’s sensitivity is magnificent.
