Christian Science Monitor
Three short documentaries about photography made by one of France's finest directors.
New York Daily News
A masterful collection of cinematic essays.
Varda renders the political personal and the personal universal.
A work of great charm and bold aesthetic impurity, Agnès Varda's Cinévardaphoto is a suite of documentary shorts.
The New York Times
The unutterably charming Cinévardaphoto brings together three short works by the filmmaker Agnès Varda, one shot in digital video, the others on celluloid.
Varda's photography is a pure joy, but rereleasing this film four decades later, absent any commentary on the ironic distance between then and now, is a typically challenging gesture.
What lights Cinèvardaphoto is Varda's ageless ability to merge her spirit with that of the images she shows us.
TV Guide Magazine
A welcome introduction to yet another facet of an artist who continues to beguile well into her seventies.
The A.V. Club
Someone as attuned as Varda to the quality of an image should know that a flat, disposable medium like video makes images harder to internalize.
New York Post
Sitting through three totally unrelated documentaries in a row -- with all that puzzling (subtitled) dialogue and those long (enigmatic) silences? That's a migraine waiting to happen.
