Viva Varda: One Sings, The Other Doesn’t (12A)

France/1977/113mins/12A. Dir: Agnès Varda. With/Gyda: Therese Liotard, Mona Mairesse

Pauline (aka Pomme) sings, travelling the country to perform feminist songs, while her childhood friend Suzanne (who doesn’t sing), runs a women’s health clinic. Charting the personal and political changes in two French women’s lives from the early 1960s to the mid-70s, this is a joyous feminist anthem for the right to choose how they live. A brave film, which tackle abortion only two years after it was made legal by the Veil law (which Varda herself had taken to the streets to fight for) and celebrates female friendship.

"one of the most appealing films by a French director whose best work has always found a balance between the heart and the mind."
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
