Cleo from 5 to 7 is a film written in the year 1962. The director of the movie is Agnes Varda. The film depicts the entire movie in real time from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm and still we can feel the sluggishness of moments . These two hours seem to have a lot of activities in them.This movie revolves around a beautiful girl named Cleo, who is a pop singer.
The tarot card reading left Cleo worried. It’s strange how she believes in it. She has two hours to wait until the results of her biopsy come back. She is extremely sad and scared about the results, because she assumes that the reports would be negative. Even, when she’s home and she sings songs after the test, She sings depressing songs. Later, She visits her friends and all of them fail to give her the emotional support she needs. Cleo thought that her beauty and fame was going to come to an end in just some time. It’s Simply because Cleo was going trough a terrible time and so her life was filled with worries and tensions.In Paris she finally finds comfort talking with a soldier in a park. Cleo narrates her problems to him and he supports her. They go together to the doctor to check the results.
The doctor very casually tells her that it’s just two months of chemotherapy and she would be fine. Cleo was still in peace because she had support.
So, I think Cleo strongly believes that her physical appearance and beauty is an indication of time, and that she would only live till she’s beautiful.
