The filmic transportation from the "ephemeral" to the "miraculous" - from the disguised to the unveiled - speaks volumes in unaffected feminist terms about female reality in Paris in 1961.

This is London

Definitely a document from lost-past times.

Guardian

The Parisian streetscapes are beautiful and thrilling, and the tarot scene at the beginning, combined with overheard fragments of anxious city lives, give this something of TS Eliot.

Daily Telegraph

Race to see Agnes Varda's exquisite 1962 New Wave masterpiece, about an hour and a half in the life of a gorgeous, possibly dying chanteuse.

One of the Nouvelle Vague's boldest achievements.

Like many New Wave films, Cléo from 5 to 7 alternates between ambiguity and charm on the one hand, vagueness and whimsy on the other.

This remarkable feature typifies all that was good in French film-making during its celebrated New Wave.

Varda could have stopped after "Cleo From 5 to 7" with the assurance that she'd contributed more to cinema than most directors.

Varda transforms the typical French cinema gamine into a complex, tragic figure: the girl who's all too good at playing plaything, forced to face the hollowness of her youth.

Varda uses her documentary skills to take an objective approach to the material, rather than a sentimental one. It's amazing how much can happen in two hours.

Not every minute is as spirited as Varda would like us to believe, but in the cinema of enchantment this ranks pretty high.

As good as almost any entry from the French New Wave...a devastating portrait of running out of time...

Slant Magazine

By most accounts, photographer-turned-director Agnès Varda is considered the archetypal girl who crashed the big boys' clubhouse, and Cléo from 5 to 7 was the film that paid her membership fee.

Not Coming to a Theater Near You

Why Agnes Varda's Cleo From 5 to 7 is not considered a classic of the French New Wave on the order of Truffaut's The 400 Blows or Godard's Breathless is a complete mystery. Well, I tell a lie.
