Faces Places

Faces Places ★★★★½

Film #35 of Viva Varda!: Agnès Varda Ranked

Bonjour! I've been neglecting my Agnès Varda retrospective for quite awhile now, and I think it's about time I finally finished it, so prepare for a Varda blitz!

Faces Places makes for a fantastic companion piece to Varda's earlier film Mur Murs, but this time it's her (really her companion JR) making her mark on the world, bringing joy to the people of France. The documentary also touches on her fading vision and acts as a swan song to her illustrious career, which brings a certain poignancy to it all.
