Glamorous Cléo survives by pretending to be someone she's not: secretly she's called Florence, and this isn't even her own hair. As she waits – in real-time – for the results of a test that might say 'cancer', something is liberated inside her. Varda's style is all jump cuts and jagged realism then surprising formalism, with a brilliant Michel Legrand soundtrack holding it all together. No wonder Godard appears in a cameo.
