Diary of a Pregnant Woman

Diary of a Pregnant Woman

A Short film by Agnès Varda

Produced by Ciné-Tamaris

Production year : 1958


    A pregnant filmmaker takes us to rue Mouffetard, "la Mouffe," in the Latin Quarter of Paris, for a mix of documentary footage and imagined scenes. Vignettes or chapters unfold - on the feeling of nature, on pregnancy, on anxiety, on desire, and so forth. Women shop at a vegetable market, their faces marked by care and poverty. We see young lovers, playful and innocent. Derelicts drink and sleep on sidewalks. A weary pregnant woman carries her shopping bags; later, she eats flowers. There are counterpoints of gritty realism and playful, near-surrealistic images. Political and artistic consciousnesses create a montage.
