The short was shown at the Cannes Film Festival and received strong applause and praise from the audience there, as part of the Cannes Classic section. The short film was later released on Prada's official website.
The short was filmed in Paris, France and director Roman Polanski had the following to say about the experience:
"A game, a thought, that through friendship and mutual respect has become true. When I was asked to shoot a short movie for Prada, I did not think that I could really be myself, but the reality is that in the total freedom I was given, I had the opportunity to reunite my favorite group of people on set and just have fun.
The chance to dwell on what the fashion world represents nowadays and the fact that it is accompanied by so many stereotypes is fascinating and at the same time a bit upsetting, but you definitely can not ignore it.
