Cleo From 5 To 7

Agnes Varda’s Cleo from 5 to 7 shows about the manipulation of time, this movie gives us a gist as to how we manipulate time according to the situation. Cleo who is an aspiring singer is eagerly waiting for the results of her cancer test. It is seen that how the time moves at a slow pace for Cleo as she awaits for her results. Cleo befriends a young soldier and they hear the result of her tests together. The moment when the doctor informs Cleo about her test results is an extraordinary,ambiguous moment. The tarot card scene in the beginning is the only coloured scene of the movie showing the importance of the scene. Cleo from 5 to 7 is a farcically comic film-within-a-film.
