Unlikely couple 88 year-old director Agnes Varda and photographer and muralist JR (33) create a visual essay on the French in this quirkiest of road movies. Travelling throughout France they meet local people and turn the portrait photographs they take into huge murals, with moving impact. Watch also how Varda’s former Nouvelle Vague colleague, Jean-Luc Godard, adds a discordant note in his own inimitable way towards the end of this graceful film.
‘It is a beguiling and unique piece of work.’
