Ben Kingsley and Helena Bonham Carter star in Prada’s latest short film directed by none other than Roman Polanski. Entitled A Therapy, the clothes play a character in themselves alongside the incredibly talented pair who play the doctor and the patient in a beautiful office.
Bonham Carter plays a troubled rich wasp, who attends therapy with Kingsley, who is mostly silent the entire film, and zones out to examine his patients incredible fur trimmed coat. After a three minute lead up, it’s clear that Kingsley’s therapy is of the retail variety, and of course all the clothes are Prada.
Watch the film below and read a few words from the director about Prada and the film:
A game, a thought, that through mutual friendship and mutual respect has become true. When I was asked to shoot a short movie for Prada, I did not think that I could really be myself, but the reality is that in the total freedom I was given, I had the opportunity to reunite my favorite group of people on set and just have fun. The chance to dwell on what the fashion world represents nowadays and the fact that it is accompanied by so many stereotypes ifascinating and t the same time a bit upsetting, but you definitely can not ignore it. It’s very refreshing to know that there are still places open to irony and wit and, for sure, Prada is one of them.
