If you get the CBC, this sounds like fun: http://www.cbc.ca/pa...ure_120206.html

The film, by Pascale Lamche, previously aired on the BBC and Arte, and features Brigitte Bardot, Jeanne Moreau, Catherine Deneuve, Juliette Binoche, Audrey Tautou, etc.

Just watched this. Not deep, but worth seeing if it comes to your local cable network.

It's a very French film, by which I mean that I don't think that it could have been made in the US. Lamche got access to everyone from Jeanne Moreau to Laetitia Casta, and his subjects speak quite freely about their role in French culture, as well as the connection between the film industry and the fashion industry (haute couture, cosmetics, perfume, luxury goods).

It would be interesting to see someone air this film back-to-back with the PBS American Masters documentary on Richard Avedon, whose work with Chanel, along with that of Helmut Newton, is discussed in Lamche's film.

I don't know how old Bardot and Deneuve are, but they sure look good.
