    A warm, touching document about a life of artistic perspective. Very good if you are looking for that kind of thing... not a tight doc out to prove a point, but a bath in both trivial and important ideas and observations presented in a charming and nostalgic manner. Inspiring for anyone who paints or photographs or loves Europe or European art.

    Amazing! Agnes takes you on an incredible yearn for more. She paints beauty beyond visual...deepening ones heart to the subtleties of life. Highly recommended.

    This film is a hymn to the love of cinema and the love of humanity. In these times of economic disaster and senseless war Agnes Varda is a wonder to treasure.

    Funny and profound autobiographical film about/by French New Wave filmmaker, Agnes Varda. It will give you a strong sense of a fine creative visual artist. I enjoyed this film immensely.

  1. One job of memoir is to show the world through another's eyes and inspire you to live more alertly, and that is the glory of The Beaches of Agnès.
  2. A genuinely playful wander down memory-lane by one of France's most revered film-makers, it's sufficiently erudite and extract-packed to satisfy cinephiles but also accessible to those for whom her name rings only vague bells.

    Oddball mix that may strike some as overly whimsical but should delight the filmmaker's many fans.
