Cleo from 5 to 7

The main character in this film by Agnes Varda, Cleo, is waiting for her cancer test results, and like all of us would be, she is terrified and cannot think of much else for the time being.

We see her in various settings, all around Paris, including Parc Montsouris, shown here. The film lets us see her vanity and others' view of her; she is not very real to those around her, who do not care about her illness, but about her looks and what she can offer them.
