The Beaches of Agnès is the playful and reflective autobiography of accomplished filmmaker and photographer Agnès Varda. As we might expect from this influential artist, Varda turns her life into art, inventing a kind of documentary self-portrait format in which she stages herself among excerpts of her films, images and reportage. Watching the movie is akin to spending the afternoon with a favorite aunt, turning the pages of a family scrapbook as she shares her rich verbal and visual descriptions of the stories behind the photographs.
