Agnes Varda (now 86) is the one woman director who was part of the otherwise “boys' club” that made up the French New Wave. Here she perfectly captures Paris of the 1960s with this real-time portrait of a singer (Corinne Marchand) set adrift in the city while waiting for medical test results. A chronicle of the minutes of one woman’s life, the groundbreaking film is a spirited mix of cinema vérité and melodrama. Features an evocative score by Michel Legrand. With subtitles.
