The Beaches of Agnes
A reflection on art, life and the movies, The Beaches of Agnès is a magnificent film from the great Agnès Varda, director of The Gleaners and I and Cleo from 5 to 7, a richly cinematic self portrait that touches on everything from the feminist movement and the Black Panthers to the films of husband Jacques Demy (The Umbrellas of Cherbourg) and the birth of the French New Wave.

Four Stars! "A great, loving, uplifting film."
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

"Glorious... A remarkable history, rich in comedy and occasionally heartbreaking, filled with wise reflections and strange digressions about the wonders of life."
Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

"A work of art in its own right, one of her bestÃÂa poignant, rapturously emotional tribute to life itself."
Richard Brody, The New Yorker

"Exhilarating. A lively, visually stunning autobiographical essay...Will no doubt enchant newcomers to her work just as thoroughly as it will captivate her longtime fans. The Beaches of Agnès might be the best film yet from a director who for half a century has managed to inspire, astonish and endure."
Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

"Extraordinary. Breathtaking. It's difficult not to leave the theater giddy at being swept up in Ms. Vardas' embrace."
Betsy Sharkey, LA Times

"An artist of undiminished vigor, curiosity and intelligence."
A.O. Scott, The New York Times

"A masterpiece."
Stuart Klawans, The Nation

"Wonderful. It's tempting to say that she's the most distinguished living woman filmmaker. But that would be to insult her with faint praise. She's one of the most distinguished filmmakers, period."
John Powers, NPR

"Exciting and inspirational. The sort of documentary that inspires you to pursue art, love and friendship while looking forward to senior citizenship with anticipation."
Alonso Duralde, MSNBC

"A cinematic reverie. 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."
David Edelstein, New York Magazine
