L'Univers de Jacques Demy

  • Film

Time Out says

Continuing her memorial to her late husband, Varda turns from the life (Jacquot de Nantes) to the work, with a mixture of extracts, documentary footage and interviews. Essential viewing, obviously, for anyone at all in sympathy with Demy's 'universe'. Surprises include a glimpse of Jim Morrison visiting the set of Peau d'Ane, and Harrison Ford relating how he was picked by Demy to play the lead in Model Shop but was fired by Columbia for lacking star potential. Varda consults not only ex-colleagues but fans as well, all of whom are impressively fluent, in the French manner: 'For me, that film was a shining star, each point representing a Demy theme...'
