Critics reviews

Varda’s generosity of spirit and her career-long tendency towards self-portraiture (exhibited in Daguerréotypes through her interrogation of what she herself is thinking, as much as what her subjects are thinking) afford us the opportunity to indulge in the same exercise. Daguerréotypes is all the things Varda fears it might be, but at its heart it’s a universal overture, which all cinema can live for: let me into your world; let me know what you feel; let me learn how you live.
