Observing traditional crafts and trades with loving fascination, Varda empathetically evokes their paradoxes-the depth of practical knowledge, the lack of variety in experience.
Daguerréotypes has aged splendidly, acquiring flavors that would've been inconceivable at the time it was made.
Varda has shown an extraordinary gift for capturing the theatricality of the mundane, particularly in her documentaries.
The 'mysteries of daily exchange' resonate within, including windows with breads artfully shaped by hand, conjured incidental street magic, and pen and papers instead of cash registers. And where the word consumerism has amazingly, never been uttered.
Agnes Varda's magnificent documentary, filmed in 1976, gets its long-awaited US premiere in Dec 2011. Pure joy!
Daguerreotypes, one of Agnès Varda's early yet accomplished feature-length documentaries, presages the themes and visual style she would explore in her subsequent work.
Like many of Varda's similarly themed explorations, the results are more than they initially seem, casual anthropology with a strongly humanist bent, resulting in a film that's fueled more by compassion than curiosity.
It's a charming pic of a way of city life that no longer exists.
