What does being a woman really mean? How do women live the status society reserves for them? A group of women, beautiful or not, young or not, gifted with motherly instinct or not, answer before Agnès Varda's camera.
Those wonderful stairs, so many stories, so many films...
Agnès Varda's short "T'as De Beaux Escaliers, Tu Sais" ("You've Got Beautiful Stairs, You know?") is an homage to the French Cinematheque and an invitation to us viewers to discover its beauty, its charm, to watch the great movies that were part of its history and walk on the elegant stairs of the place.
The film is narrated by Isabelle Adjani and features not only images of the Cinematheque but also clips from films like "Citizen Kane", "Ran", "Battleship Potemkin" and more, some of the films that were shown there. In an unusual way, Varda selected scenes from these films where stairs are displayed making a funny contrast between the stairs from the Cinematheque and the ones filmed in classic films.
It's very hard to tell the more of 50 years of history of a magnificent place like that in three minutes but at least Agnes tried. It's a good invitation and a nice homage to the art of films. 7/10
