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

    Beautiful, absorbing, and touching, this film is a mind-expanding experience not to be missed.
  3. 100
    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.
  4. Of all the movies I've seen in the past several years, this is one of the ones I love the most.
  5. A fascinating nonfiction voyage into rural and urban France, focusing on idiosyncratic individuals who live off things the rest of us throw away, from food to furniture.
  6. Feels delightfully organic, eccentrically rambling, the found artistic collage of a woman who herself loves to collect.
  7. 90
    It's a superb example of the genre of the self-expressive documentary.
  8. At once guileless and profound.
  9. Varda sees herself as a gleaner as she searches for the people and cultural activities missed by the rest of the media.
  10. She (Varda) plucks images and stories from the world around her, finding beauty and nourishment in lives and activities the world prefers to ignore.
