Dior and I brings the viewer inside the storied world of the Christian Dior fashion house with a privileged, behind-the-scenes look at the creation of Raf Simons' first haute couture ... See full summary »
Follows the creation of The Metropolitan Museum of Art's most attended fashion exhibition in history, "China: Through The Looking Glass," an exploration of Chinese-inspired Western fashions by Costume Institute curator Andrew Bolton.
A few years ago, I saw a movie called THE September ISSUE. It was an interesting profile of a woman (Anna Wintour) in a world (fashion) that I generally have no interest in. It succeeded because it gave you insight into the person, made you empathise with (or at least understand) her, and taught you things that you are generally glad you now know. Just like a good documentary should.
Unfortunately, MADEMOISELLE C is no September. It is more of a guilty pleasure for people who like the fashion scene. I got no real insight into the main character (just a sense of hero worship), and got either bored or amused by the overindulgence in the on-site shoot scenes.
As alluded to before, a good documentary should either say something or take you into a world you are not familiar with (preferably both). This movie is no more than a reality television episode.
