This is a gorgeous movie, beautifully acted and scripted. Audrey Tautou, in her subtle and fierce performance, captures the tenacity, charm, intelligence and remarkably original take on life that propelled Gabrielle Chanel from an orphan abandoned by her father to the famed icon of twentieth century fashion her last name now embodies. The costumes and scenery are gorgeous and authentic, the acting sublime - especially that of Benoît Poelvoorde, who plays Coco's older, jaded playboy lover/friend/financial provider Baron Balsan during her early days. I especially loved the passionate scenes between Coco and the true love of her life, "Boy" Capel, and the simplicity and beauty of the final scene showing the designer in all of her glory...ah, but at what price? A moving, elegant, fitting tribute to a remarkable woman.

I like this film because it portrays Coco Chanel who was my favorite kind of particular witch. The added bonus is Audrey Tataou filmed closest to naked as I have ever seen her and in a rather film-carrying performance. The set and cinematography are A number one. The weak links are the script and the plot. Look at as an Adam Ant Videodrome. Audrey has some seriously disturbed and hard eghm..thumbnail polish. Lo doth a Beastlord walketh and beholdeth
