First off, I am NOT an "ethnic cleanser" despite what people have said on comment sections. Secondly (getting to FACES PLACES) where is the plot in this movie?

Loved this documentary - I found the banter and budding friendship between JR and Agnès to be enlightening. The film leaves you with the resounding adage - it's not necessarily about the destination but the journey (and the faces you meet along the way)!

Full of beautiful creativity and a sweet, humorous friendship, yet deep and raw at times too. Agnes Varda at her best. This had my vote for best doc at the Oscars, but anyway.....
