Chicago Sun-Times
The story of herself (Varda), a woman whose life has consisted of moving through the world with the tools of her trade, finding what is worth treasuring.

She (Varda) plucks images and stories from the world around her, finding beauty and nourishment in lives and activities the world prefers to ignore.

Boston Globe
Varda's charmingly eccentric amble, wise in its seeming waywardness.

Philadelphia Inquirer
At once guileless and profound.

L.A. Weekly
It's both surreal -- and wholly accessible.

New York Magazine (Vulture)
There's a timelessness, an immanence to what she (Varda) shows us.
75
Varda's subject matter is surprisingly rich, but it's her own energetic, curious nature that gives the film its snap.
70
It's a humbling way of life, and one that, as Varda discovers in this wonderful, 80-minute essay, has survived in surprising ways.

New York Daily News
Varda injects her sprightly personality into the film, a seasoning that sometimes overwhelms the stew.
