CLÉO FROM 5 TO 7
“Cléo from 5 to 7 plays today as startlingly modern. Released in 1962, it seems as innovative and influential as any New Wave film.” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

This stunning and spirited breakthrough film from Agnès Varda, the primary female director of the French New Wave, is a real-time portrait of a beautiful singer set adrift in Paris as she awaits the potentially life-changing results of a medical test.

Cléo from 5 to 7 details an hour and a half in the life of Cléo (Corinne Marchand), a French pop singer anxiously awaiting news from her doctor regarding a biopsy. Traveling across Paris as she waits to learn her fate, Cléo’s journey through the city, which encompasses a rich series of encounters from shopping to falling in love with a soldier on leave, eventually becomes a journey of self-discovery. Vain, childish and selfish at the start, she transforms over the course of the film’s 90 minutes from a passive young woman into an active participant in her own life. A moving, mysterious and lyrical chronicle of the minutes of one woman’s life as she faces her own mortality, Cléo from 5 to 7 is a strikingly innovative mix of vivid vérité and melodrama, featuring a score by Michel Legrand (The Umbrellas of Cherbourg) and cameo appearances by New Wave royalty Jean-Luc Godard and Anna Karina. Beautifully shot and realized by photographer-turned-filmmaker Varda, this key work of the French New Wave also serves as an eloquent and unforgettable snapshot of Paris in the sixties.
