Daguerréotypes

An intimate documentary portrait of the small shops and shopkeepers of the Rue Daguerre in Paris—Agnès Varda's home of over 50 years.

"Daguerréotypes opens with Mystag the magician, who acts as narrator, alongside Varda, for an illuminating stroll on the Rue Daguerre (a street named after one of the pioneers of photography, Louis-Jacques-Mandé Daguerre). In her observations of the baker, grocer, butcher, perfumer and laundress, Varda is unobtrusive but inquisitive, gleaning information about the shopkeepers' histories and hopes."

Observing traditional crafts and trades with loving fascination, Varda empathetically evokes their paradoxes-the depth of practical knowledge, the lack of variety in experience.
