Could a documentary like that of the strange couple formed by Agnès Varda and Jr, not be nominated for the Oscars?
Obviously not, and in fact Visages Villages will know its fate next March 4.
The two, the 89-year-old Belgian director, considered to be a great exponent of the Nouvelle Vague and the young artist known for his particular use of photography, shot for two years in the French hinterland, investigating and being inspired by the stories of strangers met on their way.
Visages Villages is their story, but also the story of all these strangers.
It’s a trip on a van that looks like a camera of a boy accustomed to traveling to the farthest places and a woman who at the Governors Awards of 11 November, received the Lifetime Achievement Award.
An atypical story that has already been awarded at Cannes with L’Oeil D’Or for the best documentary and to which we wish the best.
Here is the trailer that tells you how this beautiful madness was born.
