If Only These Super Short Prada Candy Ads Directed by Wes Anderson Were Longer!

These short films — actually created by Wes Anderson and Roman Coppola, together — are for Prada's Candy L'Eau fragrance. Though each spot is super short — only 12 seconds! — there is a narrative: Léa Seydoux plays "Candy," who is seeing two men (brothers?) at once. The threesome is inspired by Jules et Jim, Seydoux breaks it down like this:

Wes is extremely precise. The film is a comedy, but he doesn't like you to play at comedy. You have to keep things very straight and very clean. It's just the scene that is comic, not you.


Watch as she eats popcorn, licks frosting, dances, and gets a mani-pedi, all without mussing those parfait bangs. Don't you want to see more?

I find most anything Wes Anderson does to be exceptionally alienating and forced. Considering that alienation and outsiderdom are big topics of his I suppose this is on purpose, but Rushmore and Royal Tennenbaums especially left me feeling quite cold and without any character to care about or root for.
