The most obvious credit goes to the strong, sure performance of Tautou, who costarred in "The Da Vinci Code" following her breakthrough nike free 5.0 pink in the successful "Amelie." Tautou not only resembles Chanel, she inhabits the role completely, using flashing eyes and a relentless intelligence to convey the unbending strength of a woman determined to make something of her life in a time and place when that was far from the norm. The decision to focus "Coco" on the fashion designer s formative years was made by Fontaine, who cast Tautou before the script was written. One white nike free run of the most interesting of contemporary French directors, Fontaine s earlier films, particularly "Dry Cleaning" and "How I Killed My Father," brought empathy and tact to emotionally complex stories of troubled and troubling relationships. Though "Coco Before Chanel" is much less edgy than those earlier films, nike air max classic it shares with them a sensitive interest in the destiny of society s outsiders. And no one was more outside the system than Gabrielle Chanel, born poor in rural France and, after her mother died, abandoned by her father to be brought up in an orphanage run by nuns. It s in the nature nike air max infrared of "Coco Before Chanel" that we have the advantage over its subject: We know Chanel s career arc, her success at turning fashion almost inside out by creating clothes for women that allowed for movement and freedom. And the film uses that by letting us notice things, such as the unusual black and white habits of the Aubazine order that might have influenced the designer almost without her knowing it. After the orphanage years, we see Chanel around the turn of the century living with her sister Adrienne (the character, played by Marie Gillain, is a composite of Chanel s real life sister and aunt). Based in the town of Moulins, they are trying, without much success, to succeed as cabaret singers, though Chanel does acquire the nickname "Coco" after a famous song of the day. Even in these early days, the key elements of Chanel s personality her sharp tongue and formidable will are present and accounted for. A gift for survival was one of this young Napoleon s strengths, though at the time neither she nor anyone else had any idea exactly what world she would be conquering. Then, as often happens with ambitious folk, fate takes a hand in Chanel s life, not once, but several times. First she meets the wealthy horse fancier and playboy Etienne Balsan (the marvelous Belgian actor Benoit Poelvoorde) and ends up living in his chateau as his mistress. Bored beyond measure and aghast at the way fashionable people dress, Chanel raids Balsan s closet to create clothes for herself. She also meets a popular stage actress (Emmanuelle Devos) who is so wild about the hats Chanel has designed for her own use she starts to wear them herself. Another friend of Balsan s who has an even bigger influence on Chanel is Arthur "Boy" Capel (Alessandro Nivola), a wealthy Briton who so believed in her work he financed her first Paris shop. Capel was also the star crossed love of Chanel s life, and her struggle to allow herself to feel an emotion she had refused to believe existed is one of the film s most interesting dynamics. "I know how to express the present," Chanel liked to say, and showing us just how that expression took form and shape is the accomplishment of this satisfying film.

Coco Chanel and Igor Stravinsky is all style Mads Mikkelsen and Anna Mouglalis in Coco Chanel and Igor Stravinksy. Getting two biographies on the same person in such a short window is unusual. What s even nike free 3 more unusual is that both suffer from the same flaw. Like "Coco Before Chanel" last year, "Coco and Igor" is more of a microbiography, focusing on a tiny window in an enormously influential life. Instead, Kounen zeroes in on the rumored love affair nike free online that Chanel (a dour Anna Mouglalis) carried on with married conductor Igor Stravinsky (an even more dour Mads Mikkelsen). Beautiful cinematography and costuming add a spark to Kounen s slow moving script; nike air max 1 if nothing else, this is a gorgeous looking film. And though it is reliant more upon mood than dialog, there are at least hints at the creative results of their coupling. (Among the most interesting bits: nike air max tailwind Chanel s work on creating Chanel No. 5, some of the rare shop talk Kounen s film offers.) But the question viewers will likely ask again goes unanswered: What makes this remarkable woman tick? We understand by the way she stares longingly at a photograph that she s still grieving the untimely death of her longtime lover Boy Capel. ("You don t like color, Mme. Chanel?" she s asked. Her curt response: "As long as it s black.") But that s the extent of the character development. To a degree, that s because the real Chanel was famously guarded cold, humorless, demanding. Maybe one of these days, a filmmaker will crack that veneer.

Coco Chanel and Igor Stravinsky movie review Does Chanel and Igor Stravinsky sound sensual? Like the sort of movie where two people take penetrating glances at each other and make love on satin sheets? It sounds more like a file in a card catalog. Nonetheless, the movie, directed by Jan Kounen, has moments of sustained rapture. It sexy and handsome. In 1920, the unconventional, lovelorn French fashion designer invites the stern Russian composer, his sickly wife, and four children to stay at her stately villa after he flees the revolution. He writes. mens nike free She designs. Then, things being what they are conjecture, mostly the two start making love all over her chateau. As such, it faintly soapy. But Kounen heightens the speculative circumstances by treating them like a dream. We not asked to believe it, just to feel it. cheap nike free run 2 The camera repeats frames and movements. Anna Mouglalis plays Coco, and it hard to believe a woman could look more like Chanel than Audrey Tautou, whose unyielding incarnation in last year Before Chanel featured lots of effort but very little heat. Mouglalis does more with less. I don know how tall she is, but beside Mads Mikkelsen who plays Stravinsky in a way that personifies the old saying about still waters she looks long, lean, and intimidating. We never at a loss for what these two might have seen in each other. They both appear to have forbidding natures, obsessive sides, and better behaved passions than most people. Chanel wasn interested in the conventions of sexual attraction. She was married to her business. But you never sense that Stravinsky is another conquest for her. Her first encounter with him is after the notorious 1913 Paris performance of Rite of Spring, which gathered storm clouds over the orchestra pit and which the film thrillingly restages complete with Vaslav Nijinsky danse macabre and the explosive jeers of the French crowd. You can blame her. If you Chanel, to want a man who trying to change music is human; to bed him, divine. And he just as taken with her. In one fine nike 5.0 free sequence, Stravinsky wanders around Chanel bedroom while she out. He surveys the furniture, his artistic antennae gathering carnal knowledge. She all but next to him. When I say the movie is soapy, I mean it follows the contours of emotional excess. But and Igor a much less PhD title is high minded, too. Mrs. Stravinskaya pink nike free (Elena Morozova) catches her husband giving Chanel a piano lesson and connects the dots. She then suffers in silence but shrewdly plays on Chanel sense of moral duty. The film seriousness doesn harden into solemnity. Kounen luxuriates in the supremely sensory nature of Chanel and Stravinsky art. He working on a new piece of music. She rethinking pedestrian fabrics and collaborates with a perfumer in the South of France on a knockout fragrance. The imperatives of their passion are passed along to us. Feel this jersey. Hear this suite. Smell my No. 5. To sleep wrapped black air max 90 in this movie would be no different than watching it. Lust here has a thread count.

Coco Chanel Igor Stravinsky is an affair to forget Coco Chanel Igor Stravinsky (R) (120 min.) Although unrelated to 2009 s Coco Before Chanel, Jan Kounan s biopic conveniently picks up practically where that better realized film ended, with the fashion icon recovering from the death of her lover. Coco (Anna Mouglalis) doesn t know he s dead when mens nike free 5.0 she casts an imperious gaze upon her next paramour, Russian avant garde composer Igor Stravinsky (Mads Mikkelsen). They haven t yet met when her passion ignites; she s in the audience when Igor s discordant Rite of Spring debuts at the Ballets Russes in 1913, ignoring the booing and insults of a shocked bourgeoisie. Coco recognizes a kindred, misunderstood spirit. Since Igor is married with two children, this won t be a flattering affair for either artist. Coco welcomes the Stravinsky family to live at her estate, purportedly to give him space to compose more music. Igor s wife Katarina (Elena Morozova) senses something more between her husband and her host, which Coco doesn t deny. Suspicions are proven true, and confessions ring hollow since Coco and Igor don t bother to conceal their passion. Kounan is hampered by the air max 96 fact that Coco and Igor s story ended with the whimper of a husband returning from waywardness. There s an awkward climactic flash forward to the lovers in old age, still apparently missing each other, nike free run women that provides for a lame finish to the film. Before that, Kounan stages several captivating scenes the Ballets Russes sequence takes up an entire reel, and is worth it while Mouglalis and Mikkelsen nike free run 3 womens pink exude erotic arrogance. Coco Chanel Igor Stravinsky is an elegant scandal almost devoid of true passion, no matter how many times the nude lovers artfully mingle. Aside from Coco nike air max 1 sale choosing among dozens of numbered designer perfumes No. 5 will do, thank you there isn t a sense of her fashion spirit, as in Coco Before Chanel. Kounan simply designs a sexy knockoff for the back racks of biopics. B (BayWalk 20 in St. Petersburg, Cinebistro 6 in Tampa and Centro Ybor 20 in Ybor City)

Coco Chanel Igor Stravinsky lacks the fire that must have been The apparent trend has been to slice off ever smaller bits air max online of the designer s life for observation. "Coco Before Chanel" examined how the urchin became the icon. The current film documents her affair with another genius. But it s merely an anecdote, drawn out to feature length. The film begins in 1913, with the riots attending the Paris premiere of Stravinsky s "The Rite of Spring" and the newly established Chanel watching intently from the audience. Flash forward seven years, with Stravinsky and his large family now refugees from the Revolution and the now well established Chanel throwing open her house to them. And, soon after, her arms to the maestro. It s not surprising that this film about geniuses of modern design and music is filled with gorgeous design and music. Chanel s house is full of clean black and white lines, as precise, simple and elegant as one of her signature suits. The soundtrack throbs with Stravinsky s emotional rhythms and anguished, often discordant melodies. But where are the people who made them? Chanel, as played by Anna Mouglalis, is merely a humorless and rather selfish woman determined to get what, or who, she wants true to her own personality, perhaps, but only given sense, and sympathy, if we know what her childhood was like. And nike air max griffey Stravinsky, as played by Mads Mikkelsen, is never more than a dashed off sketch of the Tormented Artist prone to staring at the keys, shouting at people who don t appreciate his genius and spending long sleepless nights looking at the ceiling. There s not much drama there. Nor in the direction of Jan Kounen, who despite having two such passionate modernists as his subjects, proceeds in a dully literal fashion. There s no fire here, no sense that this affair ever rose above nike free 5.0 sale the furtive demands of simple lust. Things pick up slightly at the end, when the composer s long suffering wife (Yelena Morozova, with the face of a peasant saint) comes to terms with her husband s infidelity. And, of course, the cheap nike free run shoes look and sound of the film is gorgeous throughout.

Coco Chanel Igor Stravinsky offers passion View full sizeSony Pictures Among history s great tragic romances, the one between Coco Chanel and Igor Stravinsky probably ranks somewhere below Prince Charles and Lady Di but above Jon and Kate Gosselin. The imperious, self made fashion designer and the Russian nike free run kids composer seem to have had a genuinely passionate, star cross d affair, but, at least judging from the unimaginatively titled film "Coco Chanel Igor Stravinsky," little about their relationship was all that distinctive. The most fascinating section of this overlong air max 180 movie is its opening, which re creates the famous, riot provoking 1913 premiere of Stravinsky s "The Rite of Spring." Chanel (Anna Mouglalis), in attendance, meets Stravinsky (Mads Mikkelsen) and is impressed enough to offer womens nike free run him and his family her summer home after Stravinsky becomes a post Revolutionary refugee in 1920. She claims nike free run 4.0 v3 it s just because she admires his music, but soon the pair are engaging in their own springtime rites, which nike free run womens uk Stravinsky s wife and amanuensis grudgingly tolerates. Unfortunately, neither of these fascinating artistic giants is given much of a personality, Chanel in particular remaining a cipher whose remarkable life story is only alluded to by the script.

In French with English subtitles. kids nike air max . Jan Kounen s film is ravishingly beautiful, but inhumanly cool. The severe black and white deco interiors of Chanel s estate suggest an elegant chessboard where pitiless nike free run 2 mind games are being played." ANOTHER VIEW: "The film is elegant to look at. The fashions are almost inevitably flawless and chic. The performances are well modulated to project exactly what the director, Jan Kounen, wants to say about these two people. He depends on performance because neither is given to self analysis or revelation, and most of their meetings are in some way negotiations." Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun Times
