France 1991 - 118 min. - French.
Jacques Demy is filmed at the end of his terminal illness, away from his profession and patiently devoted to painting and writing his childhood memories, which are significantly titled Enfance hereuse. Agnès Varda, his lifetime main accomplice, was the responsible of this Jacquot de Nantes. Starting from the filmmaker’s memories, and through the mise-en-scene by his wife, we attend the reconstruction of that happy childhood which partly coincided with the German occupation of France, and during which little Jacquot’s hectic passion for films and entertainment was born. The point in this case is the marriage between the cinema, the movement man, and the essay, the standstill woman, whose camera lovingly explores his skin’s last orography.
