Summary
The great Agnes Varda's film career began with this graceful, penetrating study of a marriage on the rocks, set against the backdrop of a small Mediterranean fishing village. Both a stylized depiction of the complicated relationship between a married couple and a documentary-like look at the daily struggles of the locals, Varda's discursive, gorgeously filmed debut was radical enough to later be considered one of the progenitors of the coming French new wave.
Note
Special features: Agnés Varda interview (recorded 2007); excerpts from an episode of Cinéastes de notre temps: "La nouvelle vague par elle-même" (directed by Robert Valey, May 19, 1964).
