DIRECTOR: AGNèS VARDA
CAST: SANDRINE BONNAIRE, MACHA MéRIL, STéPHANE FREISS
Varda’s mid-career highlight applies a posthumous flashback structure (a la Citizen Kane and The Devil, Probably) to the story of a woman of no consequence: a drifter, played with hard, impenetrable interiority by Sandrine Bonnaire, found frozen to death in wine country as the film begins. With Les 3 Boutons, a magic-realist fable that begins with a provincial girl’s receipt of a magic gown delivered by her local postman.
