    Agnes Varda’s “Faces Places” wins Golden Eye at Cannes

    Varda and JR meet some charming personalities on their travels, but none of them can compare to the film’s central duo. JR is clearly a gifted and thoughtful creator, but he meets his match in Varda, whose firecracker mind is as sharp as ever. She displays none of the frailties so stereotyped for people her age (beyond an aversion to stairs — and who can blame her). Likewise, JR falls prey to none of the prejudice or impatience that youngsters are often portrayed as expressing towards their elders.
