  • Summary: A reflection on art, life and the movies, The Beaches of Agnes is a magnificent new film from the great Agnes Varda, a richly cinematic self portrait that touches on everything from the feminist movement and the black panthers to the films of husband Jacques Demy and the birth of the French New Wave.

  1. In The Beaches of Agnès, you get addicted to watching Agnès Varda watch the world.
  2. 100
    The movie is also more extraordinary than a mere scenic slideshow.
  3. 100
    If you have never seen a single film by Agnes Varda, perhaps it is best to start with The Beaches of Agnes.
  4. The sheer sensuousness of all these bric-a-brac memories is sustaining.
  5. One job of memoir is to show the world through another's eyes and inspire you to live more alertly, and that is the glory of The Beaches of Agnès.

    A lovely bit of memory and mischief.
  7. 70
    French filmmaker Agnes Varda returns to the guiding metaphor of "The Gleaners and I "(2000), her documentary about scavengers, though in this visually witty 2008 memoir she's poring over her own past and its artifacts--some of them people.
