In Agnès Varda's sprightly memoir, the eightysomething New Wave grande dame tells her life story in delightfully offbeat, inventive fashion, interweaving chats with friends and relatives, clips from old films and documentaries, and scenes from her past re-created as surreal tableaux.

She's modest enough to give her own achievements less attention than the beaches where she's always felt at home and the many colleagues she remembers with heartwarming affection.
