Portraits of the shopkeepers along the Rue Daguerre, an average street in Paris, provide an informal investigation into French culture and society. After studying the different stores and what they sell, and interviewing the owners about their childhoods and marriages, the film concludes with a series of static "daguerreotypes," in the style of pioneer photographer Louis Daguerre.

I absolutely love this charming, straightforward documentary, and I put it into the hands of friends whenever I can. It's a loving look at the shopowners on one street in the 14th arrondisment of Paris, filmed in 1975 (with a bonus feature filmed in 2005 about the same small street and some of the new/old shopkeepers.) Varda is just a master documentarian - you might also want to check out her more political The Gleaners and I. Wonderful work. If you're headed for Paris, this is a lovely way to prepare - many things change, but some things never do. Varda loves people and loves Paris - as this film shows.
