One and a half hours (real time equals reel time) in the life of pop singer Cléo (Corinne Marchand):

It all starts at a clairvoyant (Loye Payen) who tells her of a grave illness, which only confirms her fears that she has cancer - for which she has been tested, but she's afraid to get the results. In the meantime, she annoys everyone with what is soon revealed to be nothing more than hypochondria, including her maid (Dominique Davray), her musicians/composers (Michel Legrand, serge Korber), and her nude model friend (Dorothée Blank), but since nobody is taking her too seriously anymore, nobody can offer any real relief.

Eventually, Cléo runs away on her own, and in a park, she, the born pessimist who has a bright future ahead, meets Antoine (Antoine Bourseiller), a soldier who can't hep being an optimist even though he will be sent to Algeria the very next day. Against all odds, the two get along very well, and he gets her to face her fears, go to the hospital better now than ever, and get her results (something she has always shied away from) to know about her condition for certain.

At the hospital, the doctor confirms that she is indeed sufering from something, but nothing a little treatment can't cure - and thanks to Antoine, she has shed all her fears ...

Jean-Luc Godard, Anna Karina and Eddie Constantine all appear in a silent film-within-the-film.

 

Even if my synopsis might suggest it, this is no movie about big affairs, just trivial things like going to a café, talking to people, buying a hat and whatnot. It's just the context (Cléo waiting for her test results) that gives these things an extra dimension and holds them together narratively. Add to that a hip directorial effort by Agnès Varda, and you get a very nice piece of Nouvelle Vague cinema.
