Daguerreotypes script, Plot Summary: “Daguerreotypes” is a portrait of the small shops and shopkeepers on the Rue Daguerre, a picturesque street in Paris’ 14th Arrondissement that has been the filmmaker’s home for more than 50 years. The title is also a pun, referring to the early photographic process of printing on silver-plated copper that was developed by Louis Daguerre in the early 19th-century.
Daguerreotypes script, As in her films The Beaches of Agnès and The Gleaners and I, Varda, who narrates the film, gently opens up a fantastic world in microcosm recalling the bustle of Jane Jacobs’ Hudson Street. One by one, viewers meet her shopkeeper neighbors–the butcher, the grocer, the barber and their families–both in their own domains and then at a daring magic show.
