Well, I am one happy bunny. I am now the proud owner of Jane Birkin’s blouse as worn and seen in her latest film (a short) called La femme et le TGV (dir Timo von Gunten, 2016).
I’ve not tried it on but I must admit I did sniff it to see if there was essence of Jane on the blouse – nothing doing, folks! I shall treasure it and keep it very carefully with my other Jane Birkin memorabilia.
The film, which I have not seen yet aside from a trailer, will be available shortly. I have pre-ordered a copy of the DVD, which will be sub-titled in several languages. You can pre-order a copy yourself or even buy Jane’s cardigan or skirt, or other props from the film at very affordable prices here: http://www.tgv-movie.com/tickets.html
La femme et le TGV will premiere at the Locarno Film Festival next week on 5 August 2016. You can get tickets for the screening or you can buy a download or a DVD – or even just support the project with a donation (see the link above). The film sounds lovely and I can’t wait to see it.
Many thanks to the TGV Movie Team for letting me buy the blouse and good luck with the premiere next week!
