The World of Jacques Demy

Synopsis

Varda’s third documentary on Demy made after his death in 1990 is a beautiful summary of her husband’s career and complement to her previous films on the subject, Jacquot and The Young Girls Turn 25. Illustrated with clips from each of his films, presented in their proper aspect ratios, and featuring interviews with many of his collaborators, including Catherine Deneuve, Michel Piccoli, Danielle Darrieux, and Jeanne Moreau, the film gives us insights into Demy’s methodology as a filmmaker and his vision of the world. Deeply personal and lovingly made, this tribute will make you want to see all of Demy’s films!
