A Therapy by Roman Polanski for Prada at Cannes


At Cannes 2012 controversial director Roman Polanski presented “A Therapy” – a short film made in cooperation with Prada, starring Sir Ben Kingsley and Helena Bonham Carter.

“A game, a thought, that through 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 is fascinating and at 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.” – Roman Polanski
