Robert Altman’s underrated, deliciously catty fashion industry satire zigzags, in inimitable Altman style, between the swarms of reporters, designers, models, power players, and oddballs buzzing around Paris Fashion Week. Mastroianni is the Italian-Russian tailor who’s on the run after being mistakenly accused of murdering an industry bigwig. He’s one among a sprawling cast of international luminaries that includes Sophia Loren (recreating a certain iconic striptease), Kim Basinger, Lauren Bacall, Julia Roberts, Tim Robbins, and Forest Whitaker. With its of-the-moment fashions, zeitgeisty celebrity cameos, and soundtrack that skips from Salt-N-Pepa to Björk to The Cranberries, it plays like a Nashville for the ’90s.
