The great Agnès Varda, now 89, hits the road with the photographer JR in search of the people and their villages—faces and places—that make rural France what it is. As the two artists work with villagers to affix JR’s monumental portraits of the locals to various buildings, the documentary celebrates the transformative power of art, as embodied in our two witty and wise hosts. –Vancouver International Film FestivalMagnificently moving, funny and altogether wonderful!
