Agnès Varda, 1991. 118 min. Color & B&W. DCP VOSTA. Restored Version. With Philippe Maron, Edouard Joubeaud, Laurent Monnier.
In French with English subtitles.
One of the great acts of love in the history of filmmaking, Jacquot de Nantes is Varda’s tribute to her husband and fellow New Wave director Jacques Demy. Through reenactments of Demy’s childhood in Occupation France, clips from his enchanting films, and footage of the ailing director in the last months of his life, Varda creates an unforgettable portrait of the artist as a magician of cinema, enthralled by moving images. A fascinating complement to Demy classics such as The Umbrellas of Cherbourg,Jacquot de Nantes also stands alone as a heartwarming—and heartrending—story of youth and discovery.
