Flipping Uncle Kimono, John Malkovich, Milan Fashion Show
Actor/Designer John Malkovich and business partner Francesco Rulli summon a tv producer to Milan to document and participate in his unconventional fashion show. Rather then using regular models, Mr . Malkovich plans to have 20 Judo fighters beat each other up while wearing his designs. They will do this on a stage, in front of a live audience, with Mr. Malkovich directing all the action. He will also direct the 3 camera's of the Fashion Television crew as they film the event. The Hollywood star has 3 days to pull this unusual spectacle together. The tv crew follows Mr. Malkovich as he oversees fittings, tries to choreograph a group of Italian fighters, and drives to the factory where his clothes are manufactured. Along the way, we learn of his mother's agorophobia; that his children think he's a loser, and the voracious eating habits of his wife.
