"An angel watching over a boy. This angelwith these wings, that Méliès could have invented, will never leave Arrietta's films. As if it had become his guardian angel, watching over his preserved childhood, a smile haunting his cruelest films..."
- Emile Breton

"Arrietta scrutinizes and stalks the people he freezes on celluloid in the manner of filmmakers like Jacques Rivette, Jean Eustache and Jacques Rozier, yet, at the same time, he instills an atmosphere of fantasy reminiscent of Jean Cocteau. This symbiosis, rarely faulted, produces very beneficial effects." - Gérard Courant

"A young Spaniard outside of every system, of every small group, of every influence, records on 16mm (since for him, cinema cannot be an occupation) the quiet heartbreaking delusions that express, better than if he had prepared indictments, the state of mind of a generation for whom poetry today is the only refuge and the only practicable fight..." - Jean-André Fieschi, Cahiers du Cinéma, 1964
