Jacquot de Nantes (1991)

Agnes Varda directs Jacques Demy, Philippe Maron and Edouard Joubaeud in this recreation of her husband’s childhood in Nazi occupied France exploring his burgeoning cinematic ambitions.

Flashes of Demy’s actual work echo throughout. You see the moment inspired recreated as it own portion of celluloid. This is a very sweet heartfelt, cinematic love letter and perfectly watchable coming-of-age drama.
