Siste skrik fra Paris: Fransk mote på film
French Fashion in Films
This film cycle shows how French fashion has been depicted on screen over time through eleven films. It encompasses fictional films from the early days of cinema to the present day,ranging from romantic comedy to thriller. All these works present different aspects of French fashion from production to distribution, promotion, and consumption. The films exemplify how film directors have integrated fashion to their narratives, drawing on it for dramatic effect, to build characters and atmospheres, and move plots along. They have, in short, plotted French fashion!
