Denys Arcand, French Canada’s greatest filmmaker, is always thinking. Even when he’s doing what is ostensibly a piece of hackwork like this — a standard “rise and fall” of a fashion model — there are wonderful flashes of originality. The big gimmick here is that we only see our hero as the public sees her, in snippets on TV chat shows and red carpet interviews. Each innovation tops the next as the peripheral characters broaden out. I’m sure this is a low-budget affair with many favors thrown in. Some sets looks ridiculously cheap, while some of the locations are loaded with production value. Fun movie, even if predictable.
