Cartier and Sophia Coppola: From inspiration to creation
As a model of unique style and femininity, Cartier invites the famous director Sofia Coppola to freely express his talents and direct the Panthère de Cartier Cartier Cheetah watch micro-film.
In the eyes of people, Sophia Coppola has always been a representative of elegant taste and modern style. As a firm artist, she dares to transcend the tide in her creations and interprets the true face of today’s women from a delicate perspective. Some of her films do revolve around male characters (such as Stephen Dorf in Somewhere and Bill Murray in Lost Tokyo), but most of her works feature females. The feminine perspective is an important part of Sophia’s artistic creation, and it is also a theme that she skillfully presents on the big screen. She is exceptionally talented, possesses a unique artistic conception, and is familiar with the modern way of interpreting past times.
The spirit of the 1980s is a reflection of Ms. Cheetah’s temperament, and Sophia’s accurate understanding of this era is in line with the series born in 1983.
Sophia Coppola: Insightful Feminist Perspective
‘I have always been passionate about Cartier, and its archives, history, and design are so unique. I am a loyal fan of Cartier.
When Cartier invited me to film a relaunch of the Panthère de Cartier Cartier Cheetah Watch, my first thought was: Who is Ms. Cheetah? What will her life look like?
I really like the Panthère de Cartier watch, so I am very happy to be able to show its fashion and gorgeous charm through the film. This watch is very unique, it is not only a watch, but also jewelry that can be worn daily or with gorgeous evening wear.
In 1983 when the Panthère de Cartier Cartier Cheetah series watch was born, excellent films continued to emerge, and I was deeply fascinated by the movie stars of the time. The lady with this cheetah watch is of outstanding temperament, which makes me fresh. That era is worth revisiting and giving a modern perspective. Ms. Cheetah is elegant, mature, fashionable, and sexy. I imagine her as a travel-loving European woman who sets the story for the film. We filmed for several days in Los Angeles in locations including Union Station in the city center, Georgio’s nightclub, a Hollywood hotel, and ‘Fox Residence’. We successfully created a scene with the unique atmosphere of a Panthère cheetah watch.
I remember when I first met Courtney Eaton during a film audition, she had inherent charm. We decided to add a few friend roles for her in the club scene. I met Amanda and her sister Brooklyn in Paris, and I’m glad they joined the film. It was a great experience to complete this film in Los Angeles with such a great team. We managed to create the kind of atmosphere I imagined. ‘
