who are you, polly maggoo?

Qui êtes-vous, Polly Maggoo? to be more precise. This movie is amazing – directed by William Klein, the movie is a very arty and satirical take on a young model’s life in the 60s. Polly Maggoo (the model) is followed around by a tv film crew who is documenting her fabulously excessive lifestyle. It is an inadvertant precursor to modern day reality shows.

Unfortuantely youtube didn’t have one of my favorite scenes but what can you do? If you want to see yet another gorgeous, creatively shot French movie look this up. I couldn’t find it on netflix, so send them an email like I did and ask them to stock it!
