"It is Ms. Varda's eye that gives the film unity. Each of the carefully massed, densely textured, black-and-white images seems to constitute an individual moment of grace..."

"Even when the actors take centre screen, Varda's camera delights in unmooring itself from their tether and drifting omnisciently..."
From her debut in 1956, filmmaker Agnès Varda made films that foreshadowed the coming of the French New Wave, eventually crafting one of the movement's most indelible films, CLEO FROM 5 TO 7. Characterized by a remarkable synthesis of documentary and fiction, this collection presents the director's greatest work: LE BONHEUR, a romantic fable of love and loss; CLEO FROM 5 TO 7, an intimate and fluid portrait of two hours in the life of pop singer; LA POINTE COURTE, an incisive study of a troubled marriage; and VAGABOND, the story of a young female drifter in the south of France.
