She had obviously lived a good long life, but this is still very upsetting

Really sad about this. 'Faces, Places' was really lovely, she was still making great films.

RIP. I really like Cléo de 5 à 7.

I was a volunteer at a film festival a few years ago and she asked me for directions.  that's my Agnès Varda anecdote.

Has me tearing up this one.

I'm sure many, even most of us have, but go discover her lovely films if you haven't - they're basically the least pretentious most earnest and thoughtful French films ever!

Never would I have thought that someone could look so similar to Ann Widdecombe, and yet be so different in every conceivable way.  Gleaned so much from her.  Lovely woman.
