Diary of a pregnant woman

Diary of a pregnant woman

Agnès Varda

France, 1958, 16 min., French.


The text under the title and the first images put the enunciation of this short film in the body and look of a pregnant woman who wanders about Mouffetard street, popularly known as “la Mouffe” at the Latin neighbourhood in Paris. Like in Varda's film debut, Le Pointe-Courte, the powerful and sharp documentary shots, in this case examining the marginal street landscape and people, run in parallel to an innocent, emerging love story. Brief inter-titles (environment, pregnancy, anxiety...) tinge the look over these already raw, direct images which are already close to a kind of surrealism not exempt from a political edge.
