Forgetting To Be Interested.

Vagabond
1985, France
Agnes Varda
DVD

A homeless French woman drinks a great deal of wine and dies in a field. Exactly as exciting as it sounds. Perhaps I need to spice things up a bit.

CUE DRAMATIC VOICE OVER:

“In a world where movies have plot, direction, and purpose, one woman will fight the system, twenty years after it was fashionable to do so. Join director Agnes Varda and a young bag-lady who smells of sweat and breath as they wander aimlessly through rural France. It’s an adventure you’ll never remember”.

Cue rapid montage of ABSOLUTELY NOTHING HAPPENING.

OK, so I don't really remember anything about this film, other than it made me kind of sad and I don't feel like watching it again. I need to start reviewing films in a more timely fashion.
