This fascinating film really belongs to those people whose names never made the history books, barely even their local newspaper headlines.

These clips are fascinating, but Journal de France would have been a stronger documentary if Monsieur Depardon had provided narrations for some of them.

Observer [UK]

It's fascinating fare, offering both an insight into the emergence of Depardon's still influential "direct cinema" aesthetic, and an affectionate portrait of a unique visual artist and cultural archivist.

Has moments of magic, but you can't help feeling that an outsider would have fashioned something with more bite.

Guardian [UK]

An engrossing and valuable personal record of the work of photographer and film-maker Raymond Depardon, depicting his autumnal journey across France, taking pictures of buildings and street scenes that he believes are in danger of dying out.

Journal de France is really two films, awkwardly joined but rejoicing in a paradox the French, of all, must surely love.

Best treated as a sampler of his career highlights, this might well serve as a good introduction.

Even in fragments, the humanism of Depardon's gaze moves and inspires.

A tribute to a masterful eye, a humanistic heart and a wondrous life, "Journal" is a natural for docu fests and Euro satcasts.

Depardon is engaging, but so reserved that he never quite comes into focus.

Screen International

We never get a feeling for the man behind these images, which may be entirely appropriate in his other work, but here it makes a fragile pillar for a 100-minute running time.
