Still life…

November 14, 2009

1940, Paris, Occupied France. There’s the usual Saturday crush of shoppers in the Printemps department store. But this afternoon is different- there are shouts and blowing of whistles, and the German soldiers are stopping shoppers, searching them, asking to see their papers. But what they are looking for is hidden in plain sight. For the head of the French Resistance and her intelligence contact from Alsace, motionless and stiff as mannequins, are now part of the window display of the new Spring fashions…

Yes, new patterns are up :)

    Oooh, that waist detail is pretty! There’s a scene in the new Jean Pierre Jeunet film where the hero does exactly that, in the Printemps what’s more (although not in the shop window). He plays it like he’s a character in a silent movie for the most part, very Buster Keatonish… Now to practice my pose and blank stare…

      No way- that’s quite a coincidence! Originally my two ladies weren’t going to be in the shop window either but they overruled me on that detail :)
      I didn’t realise Jeunet had a new film out-that had kind of passed me by. It certainly hasn’t hit the cinemas here yet- methinks it’s time for a little strategic googling…
