This is beautiful. Agnès Varda has yet to disappoint me! Simple, but nicely conducted. I don't consider myself as much of a romantic nowadays, but a relationship like that one between Aragon and Elsa kind of stirs that fountain. So well done that it even introduces an Ella Fitzgerald tune from Live in Berlin ("The Man I Love") precisely when that city comes up!

20min in and I'm curious about them both.
This is cinema!
