"...has aged splendidly, acquiring flavors that would’ve been inconceivable at the time it was made." - Noel Murray, The A.V. Club
A classic documentary from Agnes Varda, DAGUERREOTYPES is a wonderfully intimate portrait of the small shops and shopkeepers on a short stretch of the Rue Daguerre, a picturesque street that has been the filmmaker's home for more than 50 years. As in her films THE BEACHES OF AGNES and THE GLEANERS AND I, Varda opens up a fantastic world in microcosm. A picture of a city and a way of life that no longer exist.

I'm not sure that I've ever seen a better movie. Beautiful portraits of people living in a world well within living memory that doesn't exist anymore.
Loved This Movie (Docu)!!!!!!
Beautiful, filmed with love and delicacy... Beautiful! I just love it all: the way it is shot, characters, voice over... I will watch it again, and not once only. Yes: a treasure, it is.
How enchanting to glimpse something so real, humble, random, as this little bit of a town so earthy. The plays with itself constantly throughout very cloverly. A treasure, this is.
