Introduction

Although made at a time of great deprivation, Becker’s seductively energetic look at the world of haute couture is regarded as one of the finest films about fashion. The charismatic Raymond Rouleau plays a top Parisian designer and seducer of women who falls crazily in love with the fiancée of his best friend, resulting in a plot which veers giddily from farce to tragedy.
