| The nouvelle vague in all its splendor....
...or all its horror ,depending on whom you ask.Everything you like (or dislike) in the French nouvelle vague is here : amateurish acting (with the exception of Paulette Dubost :why on earth did she have to get involved in that business?),loose screenplay (and I'm overgenerous to write this),characters who appear and disappear without bringing anything to the plot,if we can speak of a plot.Because it's a woman 's film ,people will moot an Agnes Varda influence.But in "Cleo de 5 à 7" ,Varda moved us and her characters were made of flesh and blood.Varda ,even if her screenplay was "open" ,dsplayed respect for her audience and her story featured a dramatic progression and we could identify with her Cleo:who's not afraid of cancer? Here a girl who has been ditched by her boyfriend a singer -Pierre Barouh who plays himself since he was a singer in the sixties:his most famous hit was the "un homme et une femme" (chabadabada) duet with Nicole Croisille- goes playing around in the south of France .THere are nice shots of Nimes,its arena and the Camargue.

Eric Rohmer's fans can have a look ;it may be their cup of tea.The others can take to their heels.
