Gleaners: those idiosyncratic rural citizens who pick at already-reaped fields for the odd potato, the leftover turnip. Few filmmakers can claim a gaze as full of grace and generosity as Agnès Varda, whose solidarity with the gleaners is only the starting point for this film, which encompasses an entire moral vision of the world of work.
