Movie Info

This cinema-direct documentary from French New Wave pioneer Agnes Varda finds the legendary director touring the neighborhood that surrounds her home of over 50 years: the Rue Daguerre in Paris's 14th arrondissement. As she canvasses the shops and shopkeepers populating the area, an image emerges of a subculture and way of life that have since grown nearly extinct.

  • 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.
