"I always think everyone's looking at me, but I only look at myself."
A landmark of its time that basks in the present. The camerawork captures Cléo's perturbed state of mind elegantly, while also depicting the indifference and beauty of 1960s Paris. Consumed by fear and superstition, the unexpected spontaneity of the day can lead to enlightened moments.
Imagine getting the bulk of the French New Wave to star in your film-within-a-film.
