Film Series: Cleo from 5 to 7

1961. France. Dir: Agne?s Varda. With Corinne Marchand. 90 min.


Awaiting a possible cancer diagnosis, a self-absorbed pop singer spends ninety “real-time” minutes wandering the streets in between short-lived carefreeness and agitating despair. A peripatetic observation of postwar Paris, Varda’s Left Bank landmark explores feminism with a taste of light somberness. Look out for a surprise cameo by Jean-Luc Godard.
