Music (hence the \"Opera\" of the title) links these documentary scenes from the vegetable-market on the rue Mouffetard in Paris. Varda herself was pregnant at the time she made this film, and the images and moods reflect the subjectivity, the peculiarly heightened senses, of her condition as she seeks out symbolic reinforcement in the objects and people around her. The director insisted that this work was neither reportage nor documentary but a special genre she preferred to call \"neighborhood cinema.\"
