“Agnès Varda’s French New Wave classic…a brilliant, pioneering film.” (The Guardian)

“Filled with both humour and emotional depth…Agnès Varda’s work has a spirit that even decades later is as interesting and joyful as it was back then.” (Reel Culture)

Cleo From 5 to 7 “explores very profound ideas in a way that feels as light as air. That is not an easy thing to do” (Andrew Haigh)

“One of the [French new wave] movement’s benchmarks, Cléo from 5 to 7 (Cléo de 5 à 7). Varda remains one of the essential cinematic poets of our time and a true visionary.” (DVD Beaver)
