1921. An innocent immigrant woman is tricked into a life of burlesque and vaudeville until a dazzling magician tries to save her and reunite her with her sister who is being held in the confines of Ellis Island.
This is a 1.5 minute short film from five years ago starring my favorite actress and Academy award winner Marion Cotillard as she presents us the newest invention in terms of gender equality. How do you get men to look you in the eyes and not anywhere further south? The answer is forehead tittaes. French women knew it for ages. In the end she gets help by Taraji P. Henson and Leslie Ann Warren in advertising this genius product. I thought this was a really funny parody of typical advertisement videos and the product they came up with makes it even more hilarious. As does the elitist pronunciation of tittaes, which is almost the best thing about the film. Good job from Funnyordie here, better than most their stuff. Director and writer (also a prolific actor) have a long history with FoD and they really delivered here. Good job. Recommended.
