A beautiful piece, one that can demonstrate once again why Agnès Varda keeps surprising and involving me. I thought I wouldn't like at all, I thought it'd be tedious... silly me. There's nothing so far that I wouldn't like when it comes to Varda's thoughts, readings. This is a visual poem and it's more dynamic than one can imagine at first glance.
