Now part of Cinévardaphoto
23 April 2005 | by VitaraiSee all my reviews

This film is now being exhibited as the middle section of a trilogy of documentaries about photography Ms. Varda has done over her career as Ciné Vardaphoto. If you get a chance to see any of the three you will be engaged into a vibrant examination of what is photography, memory, history, and the artistic process. Be prepared to think, and revel in one woman's amazing ability to constantly provoke us to examine and re-examine our human condition. Ulysse itself uses one particular photo the director took back in 1954 to re-examine both the time, subject(s), and meaning of that photo. What sounds like it could be a dry intellectual enterprise is treated with great care and love by Agnès Varda. What in less assured hands would seem pedantic turns into the revelatory. Anyone who can take the still image and breathe life into it deserves her ranking as one of the major film-makers in world cinema today or any day.
