When it comes to female filmmakers, American Oscar winners Kathryn Bigelow (directing) and Sofia Coppola (writing) come to mind, as well as Australia’s Jane Campion, Italy’s Lina Wertmüller, Belgium’s Agnès Varda, and France’s Julie Lopes-Curval. The latter lady lent her writing and directing talents to High Society (2014), not to be confused with the same-named German comedy from 2017 or the American musical starring Grace Kelly in 1956. Also known as Le beau monde, the acclaimed French film was recognized at the 20th Lumières Awards. The romantic dramedy centers around Alice (Ana Girardot) who lives in a small town in Normandy. While dating a lackluster boyfriend (Baptiste Lecaplain), the twenty-year-old works in a bakeshop despite the fact that her passion is fashion. Yet when she serves a patron named Agnès Barthes (Aurélia Petit) everything changes. That’s because Agnès wants to enroll Alice into a prestigious art school in Paris. Needless to say, the ambitious ingénue takes the opportunity. Fortunately, we have the opportunity to see Ms. Girardot’s gorgeous body. In one scene, she struts her stuff in an itsy bitsy teeny weeny red-hot bikini. In another, the comely character sheds her threads to bed Antoine Barthes (Bastien Bouillon). If that’s not arousing enough, Ana treats us to views of her lace brassiere, nude boobs and bare derrière throughout the film. Now, that’s what Mr. Skin calls an overexposed actress! Even though Mademoiselle Girardot doesn’t utter a word in English, her body speaks volumes since she communicates via the skinternational language of lust!
