This unusual, funny, and emotionally affecting film made Varda famous. We spend ninety minutes—in this film, screen time equals real time—with a beautiful young pop singer (Marchand) as she awaits the results of a doctor’s report that may indicate cancer. She visits a fortune teller, spends time in her apartment, rehearses songs, deals with a lover and with songwriters who are beginning to exasperate her, and has an adventure with a soldier, home from Algeria, whom she meets in the street. As the film proceeds, revealing Paris of a certain time and milieu, we experience with Cléo the beginnings of a transformation that brings new perception to her world.
