What better way to pay tribute to the then fifty-year-old Cinematheque Francaise in one-hundred-fifty seconds than by filming the fifty steps, the steps that lead up to the Musee du Cinema and down to the darkened screening room, where masterpieces featuring famous steps are shown.

Brisk and charming in Varda's distinctive way. It doesn't matter if you've ever heard of the theater being fêted. If you missed "The Clock", "beaux escaliers" provides something of the same entertaining effect with a more modest investment of time.
Very well done. A homage to the filmmaker and the venue.
