(Agnès Varda, France, 1991, 118 min, in French with English subtitles)
Agnès Vardas tender evocation of the childhood of her husband, Jacques Demya dream project of his that she realized when he became too ill to direct the film himselfis a wonder-filled portrait of the artist as a young man and an enchanting ode to the magic of cinema. Shot in Demys hometown of Nantes (including the house he grew up in), this imaginative blend of narrative and documentary traces his coming of age amid the tumult of World War II as he finds escape in a universe of puppet shows, fairy tales, opera, and, above all, moviesthe formative aesthetic experiences that would fuel his vivid Technicolor imagination and find unforgettable expression in his exuberant New Wave masterworks. Interspersed with intimate footage of the older Demy reflecting on his lifes journey, Jacquot de Nantes is a poignant love letter from one visionary artist to another.
