Summary La Pointe-Courte: A film about a fishing town and a couple who are evaluating their changing relationship. Varda juxtaposes the two tales to create a unique perspective on life.
Cléo de 5 à 7 (Cléo from 5 to 7): A girl waiting for the result of a medical examination wanders around Paris thinking she has cancer; the film focuses on her ever-changing moods, and her search for answers.
Le bonheur (Happiness): Though married to the good-natured, beautiful Thérèse, young husband and father François finds himself falling unquestioningly into an affair with an attractive postal worker.
Sans toit ni loi (Vagabond): Mona, an aimless drifter in the French countryside, deeply touches the lives of the people she meets and confronts them with her own ideas of freedom.
