‘Varda has always possessed a warm and compulsively watchable screen presence, and the pint-sized iconoclast still has more pep in her step than most of us have ever had.’ ★★★★★ David Ehrlich, IndieWire

'Faces Places is the most melancholy yet uplifting buddy movie you'll see all year.’ ★★★★★ Charlotte O’Sullivan, Evening Standard
