Du côté de la cotê

Agnès Varda

France, 1958, 25 min., French.


The French Riviera, scenario of Nouvelle Vague decisive films like Le mépris or La baie des anges, was shot before anyone in the movement by Agnès Varda. In this documentary financed by the area's tourist office, Varda did not refuse to offer a fun, ambivalent view of the world. Picasso's French Riviera, or Giraudoux's or any other illustrious visitor's, is above all, the place for tourist banality and coloured overcrowding, of the fake exoticism and pretentious glamour. And that's because the comparison between the Eden and its nature areas seems to make any sense only at the end of the high season, when people leave the coast.
