JANE B. FOR AGNÈS V.
1988, Cinelicious Pics, 97 min, France, Dir: Agnès Varda

Jane Birkin started as an actress during London’s Swinging ’60s, sang duets with Serge Gainsbourg (whom she married), earned plaudits for humanitarian work … and is the subject of this delightful imaginary biopic. Birkin and director Varda are longtime friends, and this film emerges as a portrait of two talented artists who have challenged limitations placed on women in culture and society. In French with English subtitles.
