Cléo de 5 À 7 (Agnès Varda, 1961)
"Cleo de 5 a 7(1962) chronicles, in 'real time', ninety minutes in the life of rising pop singer Cleo Victoire, played by Corinne Marchand. Awaiting the results of a biopsy and fearing the worst, the charismatic protagonist seeks solace from a variety of characters on a June afternoon in Paris. Valerie Orpen follows Cleo's journey, providing an exploration of the film's unusual time structure and evocative mise-en-scene, which captures so vividly the Paris of the early 1960s."--BOOK JACKET.
