Agnès Varda's Couplets


This movie tells two stories: the birth of a novel and the life of a couple culminating in the birth of their child. The people the husband meets on their Breton Island get absorbed into this book, transformed and distorted.

Our take

Our next Agnès Varda couplet is the more conventional pairing of husband and wife, played by a couple far from regular: French cinema axioms Michel Piccoli and Catherine Deneuve! Told in an kooky, inspired mix of fantasy, artistic creation, desires and pains, Varda is a magician of the unexpected.
