Jacquot de Nantes
A loving portrait of a young Jacques Demy, Varda’s future husband.
Dir Agnès Varda
With Philippe Maron, Edouard Joubeaud, Laurent Monnier
This is Varda’s first film celebrating her late husband, French filmmaker Jacques Demy. With her signature style of mixing fiction with documentary, Varda beautifully reconstructs Demy’s adolescence and his love of theatre and cinema, using his memoirs as reference. Initiated during Demy’s last year of life and released after his death, Jacquot de Nantes is a touching portrait of a talented filmmaker-in-the-making.
