“Varda displays her vast artistic inspiration and expands the power of cinema itself.” —Richard Brody, The New Yorker
Agnès Varda eloquently captures Paris in the sixties with this real-time portrait of a singer (Corinne Marchand) set adrift in the city as she awaits test results of a biopsy. A chronicle of the minutes of one woman’s life, Cléo from 5 to 7is a spirited mix of vivid vérité and melodrama, featuring a score by Michel Legrand (The Umbrellas of Cherbourg) and cameos by Jean-Luc Godard and Anna Karina.
1962, France, DCP, in French with English subtitles, 89 minutes. Recommended for 16+.
