Directed by Agnès Varda

(1962) “As long as I’m beautiful, I’m alive.” Seemingly soulless chanteuse Corinne Marchand starts to get one as she treks across Paris, from a tarot reader’s ominous prediction to a hospital for the results of her cancer test, stopping off for shopping, a musical interlude with pal Michel Legrand, and a silent comedy starring Godard and Anna Karina. “The portrait of a woman painted onto a documentary about Paris.” – Varda. DCP. Approx. 90 min.

Reviews

Nouvelle vague at its freshest.”
– David Shipman

“Varda seizes the kind of immediacy and tension associated with the cinema verité documentary movement and uses it to create a new form of fiction.”
– Adrian Marti

“One of the few films directed by a woman in which the viewer can sense a difference. Agnès Varda sustains an unsentimental yet subjective tone that is almost unique in the history of movies.”
– Pauline Kael
