US & International:
"Modified is a love story, exploring the loving bond between a daughter and her mother; between a woman and her garden; a filmmaker and the food she cooks and the small, sustainable farms that produce it. It’s also about the regrettable loss of biodiversity, communities, small farms, and even small towns." - Signe Langford, Harrowsmith Magazine
"A paean to food—from seed to plant to crop, to transforming the harvest into culinary delights, to savoring the delectable creation. It’s mouth-watering, and rekindles appreciation of what nourishes our experience as living beings on a living earth."
"Exposes the agribusiness industry's control over our democratic institutions." - Journal Metro
"For anyone who cares about what they put in their mouth, where it comes from and how it is produced , this film is a must-see. It is also beautiful beyond words."
"Aube Giroux strikes a beautiful balance between the personal and political with her debut feature film." - The Coast Magazine
"A love story about cooking and gardening - and the importance of regaining control over where our food comes from." - Treehugger
"Aube Giroux wanted to make a film about food but instead found herself making a film about democracy." - Le Devoir
"Playfully and personally encourages audiences to understand the food they eat " - POV Magazine
"A very personal, tender, touching tribute to a great mom, and a well-researched, well-written, enlightening and powerful documentary!" - Chef Jacques Pépin
