The first thing you see is a swirl of red muslin billowing in the wind outside a Parisian café. Then the crimson wave clings to the lampposts and slides endlessly through the streets. Suddenly the voice of Juliette Armanet sings “The Windmills of Your Mind” by Michel Legrand, silk on silk, and finally we see our subject: the actress and top model Margot Davy rushes into the Eiffel Tower, she climbs the steps, barefoot, to look to the sky. The train of her dress forms a red slash at each turn. On the first landing, she meets models who turn around in her path. Then, in a sublime zoom out, her bright train highlights the iconic monument that embodies Paris in red.
Continuing on her way, she pushes open a door to reveal the kitchen of a restaurant. She grabs a cake, red, of course, and savors it, tilting her head. At the exit she meets children who play and dance with her train, laughing with joy. But she still runs, and in this iron tower that leads to nowhere, she clearly knows where she is going. A passerby with blue hair, as if smeared with the sky, observes her with opera glasses. Near her goal, the woman in red begins to ascend like an arrow. Her train traces a scarlet zig-zag on the structure of the monument. She has arrived.
