Visages Villages

We were delighted with this little great film, you can't help but smile while watching it from beginning to end, its simplicity is what makes it so great. Agnès Varda, pioneer of the French New Wave cinema, unites forces with urban artist JR. Together they go around France, jumping from one small town to another, searching for inspiring regular people, making them the protagonists of their art projects. They manage to create a beautiful, somewhat existentialist, documentary about the simple joys of life and friendship. It's fun, nostalgic and powerful. Nominated earlier this year for an Academy Award, we don't hesitate to recommend it. Watch the trailer below:
