very touching movie07 March 2016

There's not a lot of action or dramatic tension in this movie, but there is a story to tell, though subtle, and it is intelligent and utterly convincing of time and place. It is very good.

Coco Chanel was a very complicated women and i could imagine how hard it would be to play her. I believe that Audrey Tautou did a phenomenal job.

Definitely worth a watch! A sweet story, well told, the film follows the life of Coco Chanel from her early childhood through to her success as one of the finest designers of our times. Acting is superb, the characters engaging. Much, much better than the other version of the same story. Enjoy.
