Cléo from 5 to 7
In the 1962 French classic, we follow singer Cléo for two hours of her life. She has recently undergone medical tests to determin if she has cancer and is now waiting for the result. Convinced that she is dying, she confronts everything in her life with that mindset and everything from eavesdropping on a couple in a cafe to an intimate conversation with her partner is marked by her state of mind. In Cléo from 5 to 7, director Agnès Varda captures a young woman in 1960s Paris during a vulnerable moment of her life. The film was nominated for a Palm d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival.
