This movie shows us Cléo, a French singer, who is afraid of getting the result of a test from her doctor. She believes that she has cancer and will die of the disease. We follow her for two hours while she cruises through the streets of Paris. At the end, she meets a soldier who is going to the war in Algeria the next day. Written by
