Les 3 boutons
Directed by Agnès Varda • 2015 • France
Starring Jasmine Thiré, Michel Jeannès, Jacky Patin
A billowing pink dress launches a stouthearted teenage girl on a time- and space-collapsing odyssey from her humble goat farm to the big city and beyond in this playfully meandering feminist fantasia from Agnès Varda. Commissioned by Italian high-fashion house Miu Miu and shot in part on Varda’s beloved Parisian home street, rue Daguerre, Les 3 boutons slyly juxtaposes the ancient and the modern, the pastoral and the urban, the real and the imaginary to create a fairy tale rooted not in passive wish fulfillment but in spirited self-empowerment.
