Daguerreotypes - Agnes Varda (1976)
"These colour daguerreotypes, these old images, that collective and stereotyped portrait of some men and women of the Rue Daguerre. These images and sounds anxious to remain discreet facing the grey silence haloing Mrs Blue Thistle, does it all form a report? A homage? An essay? A regret, a reproach? An approach? Anyway, it’s a film I sign as the neighbour "Daguerreotype - Agnes"!"
