Over the course of two hours, a beautiful singer best known by her stage name Cléo Victoire tries to occupy her time around the city of Paris while waiting for test results from her doctor.
Varda’s sublime masterpiece of the French New Wave brought a much-needed woman’s perspective to the streets of Paris, too often shot from a man’s point-of-view. With cameos from Anna Karina & Jean-Luc Godard, Varda deftly chronicles, with vérité flourishes, Cléo’s mobility and intense subjectivity.
