Our take

Varda’s sublime masterpiece of the French New Wave brought a much-needed woman’s perspective to the streets of Paris, too often shot from a man’s point-of-view. With cameos from Anna Karina & Jean-Luc Godard, Varda deftly chronicles, with vérité flourishes, Cléo’s mobility and intense subjectivity.
