The World of Jacques Demy Directed by Agnès Varda

Critics reviews

A more conventional film [than Jacquot de Nantes] that nonetheless presses against the formal boundaries of the standard talking head and compilation footage documentary. In World Varda goes through Demy’s oeuvre achronologically, the films traced by thematic and visual connections… This strategy pays off when Varda discovers rich commonalities amongst films that for all their aesthetic likenesses and intertextuality often diverge radically in subject matter and tone.
