"After nearly a decade as American Vogue’s most subversive fashion photographer, William Klein made this trippy satire, a scathing and outlandish laugh at 60s fashionista France. It centres on buck-toothed American beauty Polly, who comes to Paris to model and winds up the subject of a vapid TV documentary and attracting the romantic attentions of both a TV exec and the Prince of Borodine. A surreal, decadent deconstruction of the glamour scene, it comes impeccably dressed in gorgeous high contrast black-and-white.
Selected and introduced by Marie Galipienso, a friend of the Monorail Film Club"
