As tender a tribute as one filmmaker has ever paid to another, Jacquot de Nantes was completed only a year after the death of its subject, Varda’s husband Jacques Demy, and a sense of their profound bond, and what has been lost with Demy’s passing, marks every frame. Combining a fictionalized re-imagining of his youth in Nantes—written by Demy himself, and shot in his childhood home and haunts—with interviews with the director and excerpts from his films, Varda’s documentary/narrative hybrid is a work of mourning and of celebration, and a final collaboration that struggles to transcend death while reckoning with its terrible permanence. “The sort of film that no one but Miss Varda would have made or, for that matter, could have made… A one-of-a-kind celebration of a very gentle man.”—The New York Times
