MY COMMENT IN MEMORIES OF THE FUTURE’S BLOG:
http://memoriesofthefuture.wordpress.com/2007/06/09/reflections/

Some trivia for you:

1. In the book VARDA PAR AGNES (1994), Varda said that the conception of CLEO FROM 5 TO 7 was influenced by the painting DEATH AND THE MAIDEN by Hans Baldung Grien. I have searched for this painting on the internet, and found that there might be 3-4 paintings by Baldung Grien sharing the same title. I don’t know which one influenced Varda, or maybe the whole DEATH AND THE MAIDEN series of paintings influenced her.


2. CLEO FROM 5 TO 7 (1961) is indirectly referenced in MY LIFE TO LIVE (1962, Jean-Luc Godard), because in MY LIFE TO LIVE, Nana (Anna Karina) said proudly that she once appeared in a film with Eddie Constantine. And both Anna Karina and Eddie Constantine appeared in CLEO FROM 5 TO 7. (I got to know this trivia from the book GODARD ON GODARD.)

  1. Wow… thanks for sharing that info, particularly regarding Grien… you can really see how it influenced the film, particularly the opening sequence with the skeleton in the cards…

    Do you recommend the Varda book?
