Irma Vep

by Olivier Assayas Retro: Olivier Assayas

A celebrated Hong Kong diva travels to Paris for a film shoot. She slips into a skin-tight black latex suit to play the role of the queen of burglars Irma Vep. With all eyes on her, her translator is creating more chaos than understanding, and the aged director turns into a bag of nerves.
