"A Therapy" - a film by Roman Polanski for Prada

The legendary film maker, Roman Polanski, presents "A Therapy", a fashion film for Prada. The perfect choice of actors Helena Bonham Carter and Ben Kingsley could not be surpassed, and it's one of the first films I've seen Helena in such classic Prada style. The wonderful performance of Mr. Kingsley conveys the sense of androgyny which certainly has been the case for Prada's recent collections - the Prada creepers, floral trousers, bejeweled necklaces for both men and women, and even the women's jackets from the SS12 Collection can be a statement piece on men. I think that's what the message, "Prada suits everyone", was supposed to tell us as a consumer. I have never watched a fashion film so simple yet so effective with its execution.
