Sonoma Film Institute presents, The Cléo

  • Warren Theatre, Ives 101 (map)

The film that established Agnès Varda’s international reputation, Cléo from 5 to 7 is a classic work of the French New Wave… Presenting events that appear to unfold in real time, Cléo chronicles two hours in the life of a pop singer (Corinne Marchand), who is waiting to learn if she has cancer. Shot entirely on location in the streets of Paris, the film features a score by Michel Legrand (The Umbrellas of Cherbourg) and cameos by Legrand, Jean-Luc Godard, and Anna Karina… In the New Yorker, Pauline Kael credited Varda’s work with ‘an unsentimental yet subjective tone that is almost unique in the history of movies.’” – Susan Oxtoby,Pacific Film Archive (1961, 93 min., in French w/English subtitles)  Free Admission
