A classic documentary from Agnes Varda available for the first time in the US, Daguerreotypes is a wonderfully intimate portrait of the small shops and shopkeepers on a short stretch of the Rue Daguerre, a picturesque street that has been the filmmaker's home for more than 50 years. As in her films The Beaches of Agnes and The Gleaners and I, Varda opens up a fantastic world in microcosm; a picture of a city and a way of life that no longer exist.

I had seen the movie a couple of times before buying the DVD, and was so pleased by the bonus features: Including several insider shorts on making and music and best of all a 21 minute return visit to the Rue Daguerre in 2005.
