La pointe courte 

Un quartier de Sète. Des maisons basses, des carcasses de bateaux, du linge qui sèche à la lumière crue du soleil. Un enfant meurt, la pêche aux coquillages est menacée par les services sanitaires...Pendant ce temps, un couple en vacances déambule, nouant et dénouant son histoire. Cette chronique est l'acte de naissance au cinéma d'une toute jeune photographe nommée Agnès Varda

La pointe courte was Agnès Varda's first movie experience. Varda has been awarded an honorary Oscar in 2018 for her career.

"Truly the first film of the nouvelle vague."- Georges Sadoul, French journalist and cinema writer.

Anna Karenina, the wife of a Russian imperial minister, creates a high-society scandal by an affair with Count Vronsky, a dashing cavalry officer in 19th-century St. Petersburg.

Meanwhile, a farmer named Levin pines for Princess Kitty, who only has eyes for Vronsky.
