Polanski and Prada
20 April 2015 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

A Theropy (2014)

*** (out of 4)

Roman Polanski's second commercial has yet two more respectable actors willing to have some fun. A patient (Helena Bonham Carter) walks into her psychiatrist (Ben Kingsley) office where she begins to tell him about a dream she had. While he should be paying attention, his mind is on the Prada coat that she wore in and hung up. While she continues to talk he decides to go over and feel the coat. This isn't quite as funny as the GREED commercial but it's still very much worth watching and especially for the performance of Kingsley. He doesn't get to say anything but the great actor that he is manages to make us understand everything he's thinking and feeling. Just look at his eyes when he looks over to see the coat for the first time. The three-minute film is quite funny and worth watching if you're a fan of the three talents.
