29 – Cleo from 5 to 7 (1962)

The Fine Vintage discusses Cleo from 5 to 7, a French new wave movie about a starlet waiting for results on a cancer test.  The film shows off gorgeous photography of Paris and occurs roughly in real time, with each activity that Cleo does telling us more about her in the context of her impending news.  She meets a young man heading to war in Algeria, with whom she commiserates. Enjoy this bonus episode as we wind down our 1962 season! We will release the finale as well as our last movie this Sunday.
