Michel Legrand Sunday Brunches: Cleo From 5 to 7 (PG) S
Dir: Agnes Varda Cast: Corinne Marchand, Antoine Bourseiller, Dominique Davray 93 mins, 1962, France/Italy, Subtitled Please note: this was screened in March 2012
The story of a young French singer, who may be seriously ill as she awaits her diagnosis: Agnes Varda transforms a potentially maudlin soap opera into a unique filmic experience. The film contrasts Cleo's fear of death with the teeming life of the Paris streets. You can't help but love the famously wonderful scene of Cleo descending a circular staircase, her shoe heels clicking out a counterpoint to Legrand's pensive music. The film includes cameos by Jean-Luc Godard, Anna Karina, while Legrand himself plays 'Bob the pianist'. Essential viewing.
