Journal de France




Running time


Journal de France is an engrossing and valuable personal record of the work of photographer and film-maker Raymond Depardon, depicting his autumnal journey across France, taking pictures of buildings and street scenes that he believes are in danger of dying out. Looking out of the windscreen at the wheel of his camper van, or poised behind the viewfinder, patiently waiting for people to go past so that he can take the shot, he is a mild and grandfatherly figure; the barber whose shop he photographs trims his eyebrows as well as cutting his hair.
