Vagabond

My first Varda film. The story of a runaway young girl, Mona, moving from place to place across the French countryside. The film opens up with Mona dead, her body frozen in a ditch. Despite the harsh beginning, it's a kind film, full of heart and all the things that will break one. Varda does an odd thing, every character, but Mona address the audience directly, almost in a documentary style.
