Mayo del 89 en Grasse (y dos). Llevados por una pasión común por el perfume la entrevista a Jacques Polge, perfumista de Chanel, se convirtió en una interminable conversación ante la mirada de Melinda Ruspoli. Al día siguiente (foto 3) pasaría algo similar con Carole Bouquet, embajadora del “N 5” y devota de “lo español” porque, me insistió, toda su carrera se la debía a Buñuel que con 16 años la eligió de contrapunto de Ángela Molina en “Ese oscuro objeto del deseo”. Quién le iba a decir a Carole que con el tiempo se convertiría en “consuegra” de Carolina de Mónaco, fan de Chanel y sus perfumes desde siempre .
French produced The Mantis is a 6 season series on Netflix about a copycat serial killer from France's past, a woman known as Le Mante.
She, The Mantis is played sternly by former Bond Girl, Carole Bouquet. The Mantis is said to be in a coma, but that is a lie and when she decides to help the police with a copycat, someone killing 8 people the exact way she did over 20 years ago, her son, a French detective is enlisted to take the case over.
The son, is very acrimonious to his mother as you can imagine. I mean she cut a guys head off! Still he demands no one know that he is her son, and refuses to discuss the matter with his wife, who thinks her husbands mother is dead!
Sounds convoluted doesn't it? The fact is I really didn't need this wet slop of a son, who is just a whinny little child, who can't even tell his wife the truth about his mother. Come on grow a pair!
I do grow a tad bored with weepy men like this in entertainment.
The show is not a bad one, but yet again I think that these 'series' do go on too long. Clearly when the writing suffers fluff is added thus sinking the entire ship. This is not the case with the mantis, but it did need some cutting from a good editor.
Too much time was wasted on 'the son' the Dick in this, instead I felt that the focus should have been on the new mantis like killer, the copycat.
You may want to watch this one and I won't dissuade you, but know that it's far from perfect!
#liketoday on May 5th, 1921 #Chanel No. #5 was launched. Since the beginning, the uberchic perfume was available along with the "sportier" Eau de cologne (now long gone and actually my fav embodiment of this masterpiece). During these 97 years many divas have given their face to No. 5, from #CatherineDeneuve to #EstellaWarren , from #CaroleBouquet to #NicoleKidman . Very few know though probably the first testimonial was one of the most famous Parisian Cocotte, actress and dancer Émiliènne d'Alençon who was close friend with #Coco . To her Chanel dedicated a yummy #lipstick last year 💄👄✋🏻
Happy Birthday No. 5!
