    The action takes place in 1979. A woman, Emilie, and her eight year old son, Martin, is in Los Angeles looking for a house for shelter. She recently separated from her husband. This fiction has to écho « Mur Murs » documentary, shot at the same time. Agnès Varda alludes during a scene recording the voice of true documentary by Emilie Documenteur the main character.
    The film is punctuated by the Emilia voiceover asks, asks us not to mention her real pain. Throughout the film there is sadness, but Emilie never speaks of her distress. These are her encounters that makes us appear.
    Slow, some still shots, like Emilie back view, ocean front, in front of his typewriter and framed by the amounts of the window, made me think of some Asian movies where "Time takes his time" .
    The mother-son relationship is extremely fair Emilie door all her affection to her son, Martin. with great modesty without speaking of her distress or pain of living. Agnès Varda shows us images that remain enigmatic. It will remain infinite sweetness, even in the expression of proven by this "separation" pain.

    And it is here that after 1:30 flashback on the life of George, will operate the magic of Capra with the meeting between George and Clarence This scene will evolve quickly and dive George in a scene from a nightmare.. Clarence will make him live a traumatic experience, showing him how the city and the people he loves would be without its existence.
    George realizes the importance of his past. This sequence looks like a film within the film.
    George asks Clarence to live again, to be born.
    It's like a re-birth.

    It is this reversal that gives hope. This is what gives us the feeling of magic in the film.
    Upset George is reunited with his family and friends. It will no longer think about suicide, it will revive and all of that in the night of 24 December.
    Capra signs here a real Christmas story, to watch again and again to enjoy all aspects of this family Entertainment.
