Coco Avant Chanel

The name alone conjures up images of style and beauty so the chance to discover where this insanely talented designer came from was too good to miss.

“Coco Avant Chanel” is a bio-movie following Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel’s life from a young orphan in provincial France to her beginnings as a couturier in high end Paris.

The casting for this film was flawless with French actress Audrey Tautou (Da Vinci Code, Amélie) playing the adult role of Coco.

My opinion is probably motivated by my inner designer wanting to bust out but I came out of the cinema walking on clouds. The story of Coco’s life leaves you with a sense of love and admiration for a woman who overcame adversity to conquer greatness.

Be warned that the movie is subtitled and you will want to learn French and book a trip to Paris after you walk out!
