All Critics (6)

A lovely look at memories, the past, and endings. It's slightly talky, but beautifully autumnal, oddly relaxing and very moving.

Film Threat

An unrushed journey, a loose summing up but not a dreary final testament, through a director's history, conducted by the filmmaker himself.
