Included on 2-disc box set Early Short Films of the French New Wave.

This early Agnès Varda short looks at the castles of the Loire Valley — and the unusual histories and personalities behind them. Punctuated by first-person accounts, excerpts from well-known poems, and stylish re-creations, the film juxtaposes stunning images of the castles and their unique architecture with the lives of those who work and live on the grounds and nearby. 

"The more I see this short film by Agnès Varda, the more I like it. There is fantasy, taste, intelligence, intuition and sensitivity in it. Agnès Varda has fun shooting her films, so that we can have fun seeing them.” —François Truffaut, The Notebooks of the Cinema
