Cléo de 5 à 7

Agnès Varda France, 1962

David Grillo's rating of the film Cléo from 5 to 7

Life in a glasshouse, as you walk and the gaze of others is fixated on you after every step they step into your world, Varda films the pre-text of these short and swift stares she measures each gaze. Eventually you see yourself in this manner. She no longer see's the world through her own eyes but the eyes of others of those looking back at her and through the eyes of those fixated on her. Varda shatters this glass.
