Winner of "Best Documentary" at the 2000 European Film Awards.

Voted the best documentary of 2001 by the National Society of Film Critics, Agnès Varda's universally acclaimed "wandering-road documentary" focuses her ever-seeking eye on gleaners: those who scour already-reaped fields for the odd potato or turnip. Her investigation leads us from forgotten corners of the French countryside to off-hours at the green markets of Paris.

Absolutely fascinating documentary about a phenomenon I knew nothing about. Interesting narration and personal commentary from renowned director Agnes Varda as she injects herself into the experience. I highly recommend this!
