Movie: “Cléo from 5 to 7” – Chania 2nd and 3rd July

Cléo from 5 to 7 is the second movie of Agnès Varda. It is as much a postcard of Paris during the 1960s as the story of a personal drama about existential questions.
In France, the afternoon hours from five to seven are known as the hours when lovers meet. On this afternoon, nothing could be further from Cleo’s mind than sex. She is counting the minutes until she learns the result of a medical  test….

The story starts with the young singer, Florence “Cléo” Victoire, at 5pm on June 21, waiting to  hear the results of a medical test that will possibly confirm a diagnosis of cancer. During the two hours, until she is meeting the doctor,  she wanders in the streets of Paris.

The film is noted for dealing with themes of existentialism, including discussions of mortality, the idea of despair, and leading a meaningful life. The film also has a strong feminine viewpoint raising questions about how women are perceived, especially in French society. Mirrors appear frequently to symbolize self-obsession, which Cléo embodies.

I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, music, good books, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socializing and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and, there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world. But I never lost my love for Crete for a minute. And seven years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
