Varda by Agnès

Cleo from 5 to 7

90 mins

in French with EN subs

FRA/ITA | 1961 | dir. Agnès Varda, with Corinne Marchand, Antoine Bourseiller, Dominique Davray

Cleo, a young pop singer, wanders the streets of Paris while awaiting the results of a medical test that may indicate cancer. A lively mix of melodrama and cinéma vérité, the film features beautiful bleached-out photography, an excellent score by Michel Legrand and an unforgettable performance by Corinne Marchand as a narcissistic pop star gradually unveiling another self, no longer a woman as object but as subject.

The screening on 16 Sept will be followed by a discussion with Nick Walker (Rochester Kino Cinema Club)
