FEMMEfille (which in english translates to "WOMANgirl") is a feature length documentary on the story of Isabelle Caro, Oliviero Toscani’s “NO-Anorexia” model who rose to fame after his campaign. Through spending time with Caro participating as a member of the jury for Top Model France and as she writes and releases her autobiography we see her attempt to be understood. But the media has a different plan and aims to exploit Caro’s offering of her body. Diving through different passages of time, with the aid of family photos as well as video diaries left behind, we see a kaleidoscope of Isabelle's life and the world that surrounded her.
In the end we come to know the complex history of a woman and the extreme life moments that ultimately lead to her death.
