"A key release in the international breakthrough of the French New Wave."
--Kevin Thomas, LA Times
Visionary of the French New Wave, Agnes Varda captures the atmosphere of Paris in the '60s with this portrait of a pop singer searching for answers as she awaits the results of a biopsy for cancer. A chronicle of two crucial hours in a woman's life, Cleo from 5 to 7 is a spirited mix of vivid verite and melodrama. The film features a score by Michel Legrand (Umbrellas of Cherbourg) and a cameo by Jean-Luc Godard. Criterion is proud to present a new transfer supervised by Agnes Varda, with the color opening sequence restored.
