Varda’s second film follows young pop singer, Florence “Cléo” Victoire, through two extraordinary hours in which she drifts through 1960s Paris, awaiting the results of a recent biopsy. A chronicle of the minutes of one woman’s life, Cléo from 5 to 7 is a spirited mix of vivid vérité and melodrama, featuring a score by Michel Legrand (The Umbrellas of Cherbourg).

Cléo from 5 to 7 plays today as startlingly modern. Released in 1962, it seems as innovative and influential as any New Wave film..”
