Agnes Varda

"...the film, she argued, was about inner contradictions: about women's desire for self-reliance and the strong pull for family and a stable relationship. Most importantly in Varda's defense, she has always contended that "feminism must encompass all women, even those who choose to stay home and in the kitchen and do their changes from there. At home is where they are most important. we need all kinds of women in films, because there are all kinds of women." ..."

- Allie Acker, on Agnes Varda, in Reel Women
