Réponse de femmes (Notre corps, notre sexe)

Réponse de femmes (Notre corps, notre sexe)

Agnès Varda

France, 1975, 8 min., French


The conclusion of this cine-track by the feminist Varda, the need of re-writing the role of women and thus love, to renew relations with a male world, comes after eight minutes in which a motley bunch of women (young and elder; beautiful and not so beautiful; maternal and unwilling of having children) speak to the camera to defend themselves from the topics and nonsense which traps them in phallocentric societies. Using agility, humour and simple visual solutions, Varda particularly emphasises the contradictory survival of that unwritten rule according to which women must be modest and desirable at the same time.
