Cleo is a beautiful French singer awaiting the important results of a medical test. From superstition to fear, from coquetry to anguish, Cleo nervously meanders through the streets of Paris for ninety minutes. She meets four people during that time and each opens her eyes to the realities of life. An enduring classic of French cinema from the woman who was the soul of the French New Wave!

Films on the Lake is a free outdoor French film festival produced annually in Chicago parks by the Cultural Service at the Consulate General of France in Chicago as part of the Chicago Park District's Movies in the Parks.

From the streets of Montmartre to the rooftops of the Grand Opera the 2019 Films on the Lake invites you in different parks of Chicago to explore Paris through the lens of famous filmmakers. Follow an ambitious cabaret owner, an anguished young singer, a scalawag schoolboy, a dreamy little girl and an insolent thug passionate about his American lover, in their wanderings in the City of Lights. Driven by the summer scents, you may even fly to Quebec for an evening with the music legend La Bolduc…

Movies in the Parks is presented by T-Mobile. Films on the Lake is made possible thanks to the generous support of our official sponsors Kids Trail, TV5MONDE, Blue Foundation and Alliance Française de Chicago with additional support from local community partners.
