Watch Roman Polanski’s Ad for Prada Starring Ben Kingsley and Helena Bonham Carter

+

A couple of days ago we told you about the Roman Polanski-shot ad for Prada that premiered at Cannes, and now, as these things tend to happen, it’s online. Filmed in what the Playlist presumes is a leftover set from Polanski’s Carnage, “A Therapy” stars Helena Bonham Carter and Ben Kingsley, both of whom are predictably great as a rambling patient and her silent, fetishistic therapist. The short is also scored by Moonrise Kingdom’s Alexandre Desplat. A ton of brands use celebrities to push their products, but between choices like Michael PittAdrien Brody, and the end of their Fall/Winter 2012 Menswear show, Prada maybe does it a little better than most.
