導演 Director：艾麗絲華妲 Agnès Varda
Agnès Varda’s first well-known work Cleo from 5 to 7 is considered taking a clear feminist stand. Happiness is more controversial: while some believe it criticizes patriarchy, others think it defends it. Is the family happy when they are holding hands and strolling in the sunflower field? The carpenter may seem to have a fulfilling marriage with his virtuous wife, but he is also in love with an independent lover. Varda does not hurry to comment on the husband’s infidelity but conceals the cold harsh reality in the poetic colors and images and Mozart’s music. In order to blur the boundary between fiction and reality, it is a family of four in real life playing in the film. She invites the audience to search for happiness with her.
