Cleo de 5 a 7

Cleo de 5 a 7

Agnès Varda

France/Italy, 1962, 90 min., French.


Cleo is a young singer who is going through an anguish period, as she awaits some medical tests. Her feelings are not very good because she is afraid of suffering from cancer, afraid of fading away too early. During the two hours mentioned in the title, we follow her through Paris, witnessing her while walking and encountering people. The most significant encounter is the one with a young soldier. They build up an eventful but close complicity, for the soldier is heading the Algerian war on the following day. Cleo de 5 a 7 is a dialectical paradigm between light and heavy, between the ephemeral and the sedimentary, which characterises Varda’s work. This film is probably her best incarnation of Nouvelle Vague’s generational, collective spirit.
