An acclaimed film director (Agnes Varda) and a young, brilliant photographer (JR) travel around rural France with no fixed plan in mind. To guide them is the power of images, which in this case serve to preserve the memory of the places.
Faces Places is an inspiring documentary/road movie of rare tenderness and gentle irony. The unusual couple works perfectly even though she’s losing sight and he always wears sunglasses like J. L. Godard. Past and future shake hands.
