Cléo from 5 to 7 PG rating

Agnes Varda’s classic character study follows a successful pop singer as she wanders around Paris while awaiting the results of serious medical tests.

Drama 1962 91 mins

Director: Agnès Varda


More or less recreating ‘real time’, the film chronicles her various encounters (including a marvellous musical interlude with Michel Legrand) with wit and quiet compassion. Jean Rabier’s luminous images, mostly shot on the streets, speak of vitality, anxiety and cautious hope.
