Coco Before Chanel With Audrey Tautou

Audrey Tautou is Coco Chanel in this new look back before the fashion giant was world famous. Set in 1908 France where we get swept away by a brooding unfulfilled young Coco. Yes she pushes her way into the upper-class with her boyish outfits and charm. When her sister, who has been by her side since they were orphans, gets taken away by a Baron promising marriage. She sets off by herself to crash the party at a former lovers house. Can the girl that doesn't believe in love learn to give her heart away? This film tells the story as if Coco was wondering around with a style of her own and know idea what to do with it. Coco has fun making fun of all the feathers and dresses with trains. She would rather put on a man jacket and wear black, "It's the only color that bring out the eyes." Simplicity that is what she craves in her clothes and life. Being so different and yet resourceful is why this controversial icon was so influential.
