It is an excellent, intelligent, and unfussily traditional documentary about a gifted artist who photographed many key 20th-century figures ...

Bown doesn't give much away in this doc. What you want to know is what her subjects were really like ... But you'll get no gossip here.

There is no great revelation and the documentary can be a tad lumbering, but Bown's photographs are a glorious gallery trip from a cinema seat.

Unfortunately Bown herself is not terribly revealing.

It's a quiet, moving portrait of Jane Bown, the longstanding Observer photographer who has taken all those iconic pictures you know but probably didn't know she'd taken.

[An] affectionate and somewhat wistful account of her rise to prominence as a portrait photographer of legend and renown.
