DIRECTOR: JÉRÔME CORNUAU
CAST: FANNY ARDANT, MARINA HANDS, ÉRIC ÉLMOSNINO, LAURENT STOCKER
Seamless and sleek, Chic! is a hilarious and romantic romp that tears through the fabric of the Parisian fashion world and will have audiences in stitches.
Superstar Fanny Ardant shows off her gift for larger than-life comedy as Alicia Ricosi, an iconic designer and colossal drama queen. Bereft of inspiration following a break-up, the only thing between her and a disastrous show is the savoir-faire of high-powered corporate Hélène (Marina Hands, seen in the hit racing drama Jappeloup – Festival 2014).
Career-saving romance for Alicia beckons with the arrival of gardener Julien (César Award winner for Gainsbourg, Éric Élmosnino) – but what if Julien melts the ice cold heart of Hélène as well?
Supremely stylish and polished, Chic! boasts the brilliant talents of writer Jean-Paul Bethany and director Jérôme Cornuau, filmed in stunning locations around Paris and Brittany. This is a film that manages to both poke fun at and revel in the nerve-wracking thrill of the catwalk scene, with Ardant’s sublimely funny performance a true tour de force.
