La Pointe Courte

Presented by Electric Palace Cinema

Remarkably assured and insightful, the film bears the realist approach, social comment and filmmaking flair that would become Varda’s hallmarks.

With the style and attitude of the New Wave, Agnès Varda’s directorial debut remains as fresh and original as the day it was made. Set in a declining Mediterranean fishing village, the film portrays both the complex relationship between a married couple, exceptionally played by Silvia Monfort and Philippe Noiret, and the economic difficulties facing the wider community. Nouvelle Vague before the Nouvelle Vague was a thing!

Varda’s film has been compared to Bergman’s Persona, Varda deserves to be recognised alongside Jacques Demy, Jean-Luc Godard and Francois Truffaut as one of the greats of classic French cinema.
