With her first feature, “La Pointe Courte,” Agnès Varda was far ahead of the French New Wave; with her second, “Cleo from 5 to 7, she joined up with the movement and expanded it in ways that reflected her own artistic inclinations. 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, Cléo from 5 to 7 is a spirited mix of vivid vérité and melodrama, featuring a score by Michel Legrand (The Umbrellas of Cherbourg) and cameos by Jean-Luc Godard and Anna Karina.Cast Corinne Marchand, Antoine Bourseiller, Dominique Davray
