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, CLEO FROM 5 TO 7 is a spirited mix of vivid vérité and melodrama, painting a beguiling and stylish portrait of the French capital at the height of the sixties. An enduring classic of French cinema from the woman who was the soul of the new wave, CLEO "captures the fairy-tale essence of early-'60s Paris with a vivacity and richness that rivals Godard's BREATHLESS.""
