The Gleaners and I

Posted by martinteller on January 25, 2005

I like the concept, but I think the autobiographical parts are superfluous.  I’d rather see more of the real gleaners.  Varda’s assertion that she’s also a gleaner (“gleaning” images) is not convincing as a connection to the subject matter.  But it’s done unintrusive way, so no big deal.  I  have mixed feelings about the digital video, and I hope this doesn’t become the hot new thing in independent film.  Rating: 7
