Finally caught up with this Academy Award nominated documentary from last year, FACES PLACES (VISAGES VILLAGES in the original French). A delightful film directed by an iconic figure from my early years, Agnes Varda, now 88, and the much younger contemporary artist/photographer JR.

Their interaction is enough to make this movie a treat, but then there are the French folk they choose to focus their attention on, each one more than worthy with their unique charms and personalities. If you have delayed catching up with this flick, you've got a wonderful experience coming when you do.
