I think the stunning visuals of this film add to its sense of surrealism. The fashion reaches the level of couture, creating a striking presence on screen while setting the tone for each scene. Delphine Seyrig’s luxurious dressing gowns in her dressing room, clean-cut black dresses at the salon, diaphanous white dress in the garden, and her dramatic feathered cape all stand out as highlights in my mind.
