Beaches of Agnès
Dir. Agnès Varda (2007). The interplay of past and present in Agnès Vardas films reaches its apogee with this memoir drawing on the 81-year-old artist's oeuvre as well as her recollections. The Beaches of Agnès documents Varda's artistic growth along with her life, although the mental commerce between Varda's life and her work is resolutely two-way. The movie is as charming as it is touching.
