Synopsis

Daguerréotypes is not a film about the Rue Daguerre (a picturesque street in the fourteenth district of Paris where I live), it is a film about one block of that street (between the number 70 and the number 90). This is not an inquiry nor a sociological study of the inhabitants, even though it tells a great deal about the “silent majority.” It is more or less a casual look at my neighbors. The film could be an archive for archeologists and sociologists in the next century. As I shot L’opéra-mouffe on rue Mouffetard, Daguerréotypes is my L’opéra-daguerre. —Agnès Varda
