Happiness and sexual revolution come under scrutiny in Varda’s first colour feature.
Dir Agnès Varda
With Jean-Claude Drouot, Claire Drouot, Marie-France Boyer
Thérèse and François lead a seemingly pleasant married life, until he begins an affair with another woman, supposedly to enhance their mutual enjoyment. In her first colour feature, Varda becomes not only an observer of human behaviour and a commentator on the sexual revolution of the 1960s, but also a painter, utilising her palette on screen to enhance the story to great effect.
