Les dites cariatides

Agnès Varda France, 1984

dionysus67's rating of the film The So-called Caryatids

A short of immense beauty and grace, it could be seen as a sort of strolling like the one Benjamin's flâneurie associated with Paris but also with a quintessentially modernist seeing. Such is Varda's sensual and poetic blend of the female statues to Baudelaire's lyric laments, both also transferred to gender (Atlas vs Caryatids). No wonder it ends, like Benjamin, with a huge angel caryatid in a glorious lateral shot!
