Karl Lagerfeld

Remember Now by Karl Lagerfeld

I really enjoyed this short film for Chanel by Karl Lagerfeld.  Even though its main intent was to showcase Chanel's upcoming line-up, I still think it keep its cinematic integrity.  I really love the simplicity of the piece, where they didn't try to hard to push issues, but instead just gave us a somewhat voyeuristic view of a moment in time, and alone that was justification by itself.  I do like the idea they were going with, try to show the dichotomy between ages.  Other then that the ending could feel a little abrupt, but it aligns with the idea of just showcasing that "moment" and worrying about the surrounding context of the story.

I love hearing the verbal instructions by Karl, it shows the relationship between the artist and his model.
