Unusual semi-documentary about a wacky arts project "Director Agnes Varda and photographer/muralist J.R. journey through rural France and form an unlikely friendship" in a Mercedes van which has been converted into a photo studio and printer, and they take photos of local folk and communities

and paste them onto buildings.

Some wonderful footage, beautifully composed and interesting stories and locations. Follows its own logic so we learn lots of things about goats, cats, farming, and there's a glorious balletic sequence of container-loaders at Le Havre docks. But it loses focus when it switches to the backstories of Agnes Varda and J.R. and becomes a tedious vanity project in the end.

Things:

- some captions

- the derelict village of Pirou Plage in Normandy

- some trailers

Well worth watching, but ultimately too self-indulgent.
