About the Movie

89-year-old Agnés Varda, one of the leading figures of the French New Wave, and acclaimed 33-year-old French photographer and muralist, JR, teamed up to co-direct this enchanting documentary/road movie. Kindred spirits, Varda and JR share a lifelong passion for images and how they are created, displayed, and shared. Together they travel around villages of France in JR's photo truck meeting locals, learning their stories, and producing epic-size portraits of them. The photos are prominently displayed on houses, barns, storefronts, and trains revealing the humanity in their subjects, and themselves. Faces Places documents these heart-warming encounters, as well as the unlikely, tender friendship they formed along the way.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The film works just fine as an anthology of amiable encounters and improvised collaborations. But it's a lot more than that. – A.O. Scott, New York Times, Oct 5, 2017

Fresh: Sheer perfection. French New Wave veteran Agnes Varda and the young photographer JR leap fearlessly into the art of making art in the year's best and most beguiling doc. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Oct 5, 2017

Fresh: "Faces Places" turns out to be a road movie in more than a merely literal sense. It is at once a roving journey into environments we rarely see in cinema and an incomplete but invaluable map of Varda's memories. – Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times, Oct 12, 2017

Fresh: What a joy it is to have a movie like this in our broken lives right now. – Andrew Lapin, NPR, Oct 5, 2017

Beautiful and touching, wonderful movie. Such great chemistry between JR and Agnes Varda, the art that is created on their journey is sublime


One of the best films of 2017


It was great when it focused on the people who were subjects of the photos but the relationship with each other was contrived and uninteresting.
