The Agnes Varda Collection - Volume 2 DVD
Continuing the remarkable versality of Anges Varda, this second collection features four more classics from the true visionary of the French New Wave. Extra features include documentaries, short films, trailers and much more... The Beaches of Agnes: Weaving photography, archive footage, scenes from her own films and present-day sequences, the legendary French auteur Agnes Varda takes us on a memorable voyage through her life, during which she confronts the joy of creation and artistic success and the pain of personal loss and ageing. L'une Chante, L'autre Pas: Agnes Varda focuses on the intertwined lives of two women brought together during the struggle of the Woman's Movement in 1970's France. To make lighter the statements related to a chauvinist and sexist society, Varda creates a musical of its kind. The Orchidee band as a trio of singers and the colourful hippie time costumes bring back the utopia flavor of the Sixties. Vagabond: Sandrine Bonnaire won a Best Actress Cesar for her portrayal as Mona - a young and defiant drifter in this tragic story. Using a largely non-professional cast Varda recollects Mona's story through flashbacks of those who encountered her, producing a splintered portrait of an enigmatic woman. Jacquot de Nantes: It's the story of a child and his obsession of pursuing his dream to become a filmmaker. How he buys his first camera, shoots his first amateur film, which marks the beginning of one of the most prestigious careers of any French director, Jacques Demy. The story is told with emotion by Agnes Varda, who shared his life for years.
