Faces Places (12A)


French documentary in which director Agnès Varda and artist JR create portraits of ordinary people in rural France.

The critical consensus

Like the most delicious, lightly-flavoured alcohol that somehow gets you knock-out drunk.

*****Sophie Monks Kaufman, The Independent, 19/09/2018

The 90-year-old director goes on the road with street artist JR to create remarkable, moving portraits of the people they meet.

****(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 20/09/2018

Varda and JR prove quite the double act and the joy they bring each other and those they meet proves infectious.

****(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 20/09/2018

Whether rediscovering La France périphérique or hurtling through the Louvre, Varda and JR make a surprisingly empathetic team and their collaboration is as provocative as it is poetic and poignant.

****(*)David Parkinson, Empire Online, 21/09/2018

Agnès Varda and JR’s culture-fuelled journey around France is amiable but lacks spontaneity.
