Whether it was Madonna's cone-shaped bra, or countless costumes for Almadovar films, Jean-Paul Gaultier has placed a flamboyant-neon-coloured stamp on 20th-century pop culture. Yann L'Hénoret's documentary revolves around the six months the enfant terrible spent on creating a grand spectacle at the Folies Bergère, allowing us a view into the designer's preferred way of working: through organized chaos. As Gaultier himself considered the Folies Bergère revue show a summary of his life and work, this film also works as an overview of Gaultier's career.
