Elsa la rose
Directed by Agnès Varda • 1966 • France
Starring Louis Aragon, Elsa Triolet, Michel Piccoli
Ostensibly a profile of the legendary surrealist poet Louis Aragon, this short documentary instead focuses on his wife, Elsa Triolet, a Prix Goncourt–awarded writer in her own right who nevertheless remains in her husband’s shadow.
