“As radically frank in style as in substance...it provides, in its brief span, the sense of a distant journey that ranges far through an unseen France and deeply into the lives of people who live there.... a vital film in itself and a virtual kit for the inspiration of other filmmakers; it’s an opening of voices and of paths.”

– New Yorker
