Interesting look at the life of “Coco Chanel” before she became the legendary coutourier who inspired a generation of women, and became a symbol of “style” and “freedom”. Audrey Tautou is well cast as the title role, and she is surrounded by plenty of colourful characters aswell. This biography is told in a straighforward style, and that’s why I was satisfied by it; it avoids all sorts of cliches. Stylish in every detail (especially Alexander Desplat’s score). French title: “Coco avant Chanel”.
Fun fact: “From 1934 to 1971 Coco Chanel made the Hotel Ritz, Paris, France her home. A suite, in honor of her memory, has been named after her: the Coco Chanel Suite.”
