ONE SINGS, THE OTHER DOESN’T
L’UNE CHANTE L’AUTRE PAS
1977, Janus Films, 120 min, Venezuela/France/Belgium/Soviet Union, Dir: Agnès Varda

Agnès Varda’s unsung feminist anthem is both a buoyant chronicle of a transformative friendship and an empowering vision of universal sisterhood. When 17-year-old Pauline (Valérie Mairesse) helps struggling mother-of-two Suzanne (Thérèse Liotard) procure the money for an abortion, a deep bond forms between them, one that endures over the course of more than a decade as each searches for her place in the world - encountering the dawning of the women’s movement, dreamy boho musical numbers, and an Iranian adventure along the way.
