Even amidst the explosion of creativity in the early days of the Nouvelle Vague, Agnès Varda’s second feature stands out for its innovation and vitality. The film is a real time narrative set over two hours in the life of pop star Cleo, an iconic role for Corinne Marchand. She is killing time, waiting for the results of some medical tests, becoming increasingly worried that she might have terminal cancer. The film’s other main character is the city of Paris as Cleo wanders the vibrant streets, cafes and gardens, encountering a string of friends and acquaintances along the way.
