Description: A poor orphan grows up to be the toast of Paris when his quirky fashion designs become the rage. Filled with earthy, slapstick humor, this comedy chronicles his ride down the road of success. Fausto Barbarico (Ken Higelin) lost his folks during a biking accident and so was sent to a Paris orphanage. There he becomes best friends with Raymond (Francois Hauteserre), who, much to Fausto's delight, is a bad influence. Once he is of age, Fausto is sent to become the apprentice of Mietek (Jean Yanne), a kindly Jewish tailor who quickly becomes Fausto's mentor. Fausto has talent as a tailor and begins designing creative and kooky clothing as a way of promoting Mietek's shop. Romance comes for Fausto after he is asked to design a dress for the butcher's beautiful daughter. Trouble also arrives after Raymond suffers a terrible accident and is seriously injured while wearing one of Fausto's more outlandish designs. Originally released as Fausto, this film is known as A La Mode in the U.S.~ Sandra Brennan, All Movie Guide
