#1248 La belle vie - Karl Lagerfeld's Remember Now

There's nothing like a Karl Lagerfeld directed short film to remind you of your place in the world. Remember Now captures (what I imagine to be) the essence of Cannes - film stars, expensive cars, youth, vitality, (virility), beauty and all night parties in clifftop mansions. Starring actor Pascal Greggory alongside a whole raft of models - Elisa Sednaoui, Abbey Lee, Freja Beha, Heidi Mount, Baptise Giabiconi, Magdalena Frackowiak et al, Remember Now's aesthetics are certainly more captivating than its plot, but sometimes aesthetics are enough. Especially when they look like this. New Zealand's rapidly approaching winter suddenly seems less attractive.

Part two below.

Second to that Spike Jonze jobbie staring Kanye West, that was the weirdest little film I've ever seen.
