Slightly interesting if small-scale and docile documentary

Intrigued by the desire to have been a Bunny Girl, the director takes a look at what it meant. Interviewing several of the original Bunnies she learns the rules and expectations on the girls as well as the more sinister side of a 1976 murder.

Intrigued by the title, I made my way to watch his short not really knowing what to expect. The film starts very small scale and is unmistakably British to which I was a little letdown as I had expected the more glamorous American side of Bunnies. The film is very much told from the view of middle-England girls who wanted the glamour as opposed to girls who were cheap or just chasing a dollar.

Interviews with some of the original Bunnies in the London club are interesting without being very insightful. Really these are people recalling a few personal memories with fondness while their families sit around them listening. Use of archive footage is interesting and helps recall the club when it was around in the 70's. I would liked to have heard a little about how the club compares to strip clubs now as it appears to have been a lot more classy but was it?

The cast are all real people and come across as such - even if few of them really reveal anything of interest beyond their own personal memories of `happy times'. This wistful recollection also hurts the film as I felt I was getting the story filtered through the rose-tinted glasses of memory. The `real' people are intercut with images of Bunnies, noticeably PJ Harvey dressed all in black and singing a very sorrowful song - it was a nice touch but the point of it is anyone's guess.

Overall this is worth a look if you want to hear a couple of ex-Bunnies talk about their recollections of the club in London, however it fails to really be of greater interest and nothing really comes of it. A subject of interest of every man on the earth is reduced to talk about how important it was to have good tails!
