Cleo de 5 a 7
Remarkable even by New Wave standards, Cl\u00e9o de 5 \u00e0 7 is a moving and self-reflexive film from one of the period's very few French female directors. As Valerie Orpen explains, Agnes Varda's film about a woman awaiting the results of her cancer test is aesthetically innovative and politically aware, as well as an excellent document of the Parisian street life of 1961.
