Directed by Agnès Varda

France, Belgium, Spain 1995 90 mins. In French with English subtitles

Not satisfied after making one of cinema’s most lovely tributes to a lover/husband/artist of all time (1991’s Jacquot de Nantes), Varda returns to her late husband’s Jacques Demy’s life with this tender documentary that charts his work from the earliest puppet shows he loved as a youth, to his incredible films, to his impact on collaborators and friends. Playfully interviewing such cinema legends as Catherine Deneuve, Michel Legrand, and Harrison Ford, Varda crafts an impeccable tribute to the immense (and supremely underrated) artistry of the love of her life, one of cinema’s foremost dreamers.
