Fifth about The Seventh

Faces Places (Visages Villages)

Faces Places: Agnès Varda and JR’s journey through France, its present and past makes for a pleasant, good-natured documentary. By creating striking, extraordinary images out of seemingly ordinary subjects, the directors tear down the walls of what is extraordinary and what is ordinary; everything can be extraordinary if treated and seen properly. The glimpses at those subjects are brief, but not any less interesting or elucidating because of it. The look at the directors is deeper, their banter is rich and intriguing (the fact that they are such apparently dissonant figures helps a lot with that), even if, at times, a bit unnatural and calculated. The many larger-then-life installations are all very impressive and to see them come to life, entertaining.
