Documenteur

Movie Summary

Director:
Agnes Varda
Released:
1981
Rating:
Not Available
Made during Varda's brief stay in Los Angeles in the early 1980s, the title is a pun on the French words for documentary (documentaire) and liar (menteur), a juxtaposition that has preoccupied Varda's filmmaking since the beginning of her career. Tracing the alienation of a recent divorceé newly arrived in L.A. with her young son, Documenteur uses its extensive interior monologue to underscore the woman's status as an outsider, vividly using Los Angeles to evoke the her sense of loss and loneliness. Varda blurs the line between fiction and documentary by incorporating elements from her L.A. documentary Mur murs and by casting her own son, Mathieu, a practice she would repeat, most notably in Kung Fu Master. -Harvard Film Archive
