“In her magnificent, groundbreaking, nearly 60-year career, this is one of her most profoundly personal and exuberantly populist works. A tour de France that is both a romp and a meditation on photography, cinema, and mortality”~Amy Taubin, Film Comment
Aroview: Charming French documentary created by and starring beloved new wave director Agnes Varda, who recruits a charismatic young photographer/muralist named only JR and sets off on a road trip around rural France. On the way, they create fantastically large portraits of the people they encounter. A unique cinematic vision with a tender friendship at its heart.
5 stars (Exceptional) Funny, erreverent and enlightening. JR and Varda are a delight.rnThere are 2 things I love in cinema: children being empowered and communities coming together. This has the latter. The community spirit and the art inspired me.~Kapila
