Not since SNL's parody of a Wes Anderson film has a Wes Anderson film been so... Wes Anderson. Jason Schwartzman, star of Wes Anderson's Rushmore (1998), The Darjeeling Limited (2007), Hotel Chevalier (2007), Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009), Moonrise Kingdom (2012) and his forthcoming The Grand Budapest Hotel, stars in this Wes Anderson-directed short, presented by Prada. For once, we are presented with a specific time period (1955, Italy), but the anomalies end there. Schwartzman's character finds his familial bearings in a dramatic and unexpected way, then comes up with some quips that diegetically give him an admirable air, while in our world would come off foolish. Of course the costumes are cool (they're Prada), and the stageplay-mimicking edits charming. And yes, it's funny. Actually, Anderson's transition into commericals (see Prada's Candy ads) has been so seamless, it's hard to justify pulling him and his cohort Francis Ford Coppola away from shorts to write and direct full lengths again. But don't worry, die-hard fans, they're not thinking about quitting those, either.
