Directed by Left Bank giant Agnès Varda as a summation of her long career, THE BEACHES OF AGNES is a free-floating essay film.
It comprises elements that collectively pay homage to her past, including clips from her features, dramatically reconstructed snapshots of her life, and elaborate, almost baroque moments created onscreen to symbolise specific ideas and concepts.
Varda uses beaches throughout the narrative as a recurring structural motif to convey her progress from one stage of life to another. The freedom of form on display here recalls a similar approach used in her earlier works, such as the 1991 JACQUOT DE NANTES.
