    Anti-cinà (C)matographique comme concept. Un film audacieux qui dà (C)molit du dà (C)but à la fin les mà (C)dias, les journalistes et le star système, pas le meilleur moyen d'avoir de bonnes critiques. Haha!! Mais il a la tête dure Arcand! Impossible de s'attacher au personnage principale qui n'est pas très brillante et seulement très jolie. J'ai vu ce film à nouveau rà (C)cemment et j'ai pensà (C) aussitôt à Kim Kardashian, à quel point des personnalità (C)s banales sont mis sur un pià (C)destal par les mà (C)dias. Pour les vrais cinà (C)philes, un excellent film. Mais ceux qui aiment le cinà (C)ma plus traditionnel, commencez par Le Dà (C)clin de l'Empire Amà (C)ricain pour vous initier au cinà (C)ma de Arcand.

    I really don't know why so many people disliked this movie. I honestly LOVED it!

    Despite strong acting by many (especially Dan Aykroyd), and a few good cameos (Arcand really likes them), the movie in itself is slow and uninteresting. Once again, Arcand tries to play the sociologist by expressing his opinions clumsily, using the same techniques over and over again since his first movies. I think that he is not the great intellectual he wish he were. The storyline, which follows rising star Tina Menzhal, doesn't bring any new or particularly original insight into the shallow and transient world of fashion.

    Can't get enought of it! À chaque fois qu'il passe à Fashion Television, je l'écoute. Bon, ce n'est pas un film fantastique mais je l'aime pour l'aspect véridique de l'histoire. On y croit. Avant de faire commercialisation de la mode, je pensais que le monde de la mode était comme ça. J'ai appris que ce monde vaut mieux que son image. Oui, le train de vie est fou et il est basé dans la superficiabilité mais il vaut mieux que ça!

    Yeah, Denys, we get the social comment. I just hate to tell you, even bad TV is a whole lot more interesting.

    High-concept exploration of celebrity seemed curiously dated and outmoded even when it was released. Remote and cold.

    So-so satire...too many familiar elements. Jessica Pare shows her huge breasts, if you're interested in that sort of thing.:P

    Underrated gem looks less and less like satire as the years go by, the film is cleverly told thru the media, provocative and entertaining. A great cast, Akroyd get's his best role in years and Pare is a perfect Muse.
