Synopsis
Despite its title nod to Agnès Varda’s Jane B. par Agnès V (1988), Charlotte Gainsbourg shows no interest in deconstructing Jane Birkin’s star status. The motivation for the celebrated actress-singer to make her directorial debut is simple – to take an unvarnished look at her legendary mother. Shot in a sense of casual disarray in largely everyday settings, it is a modest and illuminating portrait of a mother-daughter relationship, infused with affecting moments of intimate conversations and shared confidences, unlocking new dimensions of Birkin as a wife, artist, and mother.
