la nouvelle vague

“When I made Cléo, I thought, I have to work with time. We feel time differently when we are suffering or are in pain or we are waiting for something. So subjective time became the subject for me…I worked with matters that are there for any artist to work with, but which I worked at with cinema…We all have inside ourselves a woman who walks alone on the road. In all women there is something in revolt that is not expressed. I’m trying to capture something more fragile than a regular story. I love what people bring me.”

Agnès Varda, Cléo from 5 to 7 (1962)
