The Beaches of Agnès

Rated NR 2009

Filmmaker Agnès Varda’s autobiography is as whimsical and informed by fine art as her other films. Using her own voiceover narration, clips from her work, re-staged scenes from her life, and documentary visits to Belgian beaches and other significant locales, the maker of Vagabond and Cleo from 5 to 7 frames her life and career as a Jean-Cocteau-style testament to the playful spirit — exemplified by the presence of Zgougou the cat as well as by her relationship with her late husband, director Jacques Demy. Varda’s black-and-white photos from Cuba are a special treat. A wonderful introduction to the work of a unique personality (110 min.).
