I stumbled upon Coco avant Chanel on television late the other night while trying to decide what to watch. What a masterpiece! I am now completely obsessed with Coco and everything Chanel. In the film Coco Chanel is portrayed by the very talented, Audrey Tatou. Audrey is french and she has starred in some of my favourite films like Un long dimanche de fiancailles (A very long engagement) and Amélie. I really like her in this movie as she does a wonderful job of capturing the character and shedding some light on the life of the mysterious lady who changed the way women all over the world dress themselves.
