Short yet poignant.
Filled with the upper brim of classic Varda filmmaking, Uncle Yanco is stocked with everything that I love about Agnes Varda.
Simplistic but with the finesse of creativity, Varda can’t do no wrong when delineating stories that are close to her heart. In essence, we the audience get an inner peak at Varda herself; establishing a bond between the spectator and the filmmaker.
Layered with exquisite colour, perhaps reminiscent to a Wes Anderson film, it is simply an enchanting short documentary with equally fascinating characters. There was not once a moment where i wasn’t enraptured by both Varda and her Uncle Yanco. Hues of warmth raditated within each scene, breathing life into the characters and environment.
I cannot fathom how much films like this inspire me and my filmmaking. Accompanied with such splendid rawness, it revitalises itself as an empathetic piece in which the audience can somewhat relate at.
Wow. I love Agnes Varda.
