Description: Inspired by his work as one of Vogue's boldest photographers, Klein's first feature film is among his most famous and enduring works. A razor-edged satire of Parisian high fashion and haute couture, Klein's film follows the eponymous Polly, a Brooklyn-born supermodel working the runways of Paris, as she is hounded by a frenzied French television crew. Along the way, Klein holds a mirror to a particular side of '60s youth culture and provides a perceptive and highly-stylized critique of its excesses and pretensions.
