The Polka-dots on the 6th Floor

A couple of weeks ago I went to see The Women on the 6th Floor, a very funny French film, sort of a cross between Like Water For Chocolate and Bill Forsyth.

As you will have spotted in the trailer, this cover version of "Itsy-Bitsy Teenie-Weenie Yellow Polka-Dot Bikini" is used on the soundtrack to accompany a sequence of half a dozen maids blitzing a grubby flat. I rather like it:

(Fans of Dorothee and her many Valises may be amused to observe what how the bikini's colour scheme is rendered in French.)
