"Remarkable. One is moved by this film, not least because of Sandrine Bonnaire's astonishing performance."
Sandrine Bonnaire stars as Mona, a defiant young drifter who is discovered frozen in a ditch. Her story, recollected through the flashbacks of those who encountered her, produces the splintered portrait of a woman and the society that forced her to its margins. Told in sparsely poetic images set against the frozen landscape of mid-winter Nimes, Vagabond is the lyrical tragedy of an enigmatic woman. Criterion presents a brilliant color transfer supervised by director Agnes Varda.
