Aro Recommended Cleo from 5 to 7


France 1962, 90 minutes, B/W
Dir. Agnes Varda
In French with English subtitles
Rating: [PG]
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Drama, Classics

Topics: Nouvelle Vague.


Aroview: One of the treasures of the French New Wave, dir. Varda’s debut is, Pauline Kael contends “one of the few films directed by a woman where the viewer can sense a difference”. As she awaits the results of a cancer biopsy, singer Corinne Marchand spends two fretful, meandering hours, shopping, walking and visiting a fortune-teller, the glistening B&W photography of streetlevel Paris pulling us into her sensuous, poised-on-a-knife-edge afternoon.
