The Gleaners and I Review


The Gleaners and I is an oddball project from the then-72-year-old French director Agnès Varda. While the film provides a fair amount of oft-fascinating interviews with and footage of the titular gleaners -- people who find food, art supplies, or just about anything else by scavenging other people's leftovers and crops left behind in fields -- the movie focuses far too much on the "I" in this equation. Varda is intrigued with her new, cheap digital video camera (on which the whole film is shot), and she uses it to capture shots of her wrinkly hands, accidental shots of the ground (with the lens cap swinging in the frame), and even images of the camera's instruction manual. What's this have to do with gleaning? You got me. Maybe it's a French thing.

Aka Les Glaneurs et la glaneuse.
