A pregnant filmmaker takes us to rue Mouffetard, "la Mouffe," in the Latin Quarter of Paris for a mix of documentary footage and imagined scenes. Vignettes or chapters unfold - on the feeling of nature, on pregnancy, on anxiety, on desire, and so forth. Women shop at a vegetable market, their faces marked by care and poverty. We see young lovers, playful and innocent. Derelicts drink and sleep on sidewalks. A weary pregnant woman carries her shopping bags; later, she eats flowers. There are counterpoints of gritty realism and playful, near-surrealistic images. Political and artistic consciousnesses create a montage. Written by
Agnes Varda made this little movie in 1958. According to herself, the reason was that the winter was very cold and she was worried about the homeless people. So she went to L'mouffe Street with her camera and started to shoot.
This film about ordinary people; alcoholics, drunks, people selling groceries and flowers, people who buys groceries and flowers, lovers and others. Maybe they dont look to good, but this is how people look. A nice little film with a very french touch.
