MesmerisingBy Gus2 (10 reviews) from Winchester , 12 Jul 2009
[Highly rated reviewer]Mesmerising is the word used in the marketing of this movie and mesmerising it is. Tatou is utterly convincing and stunning in the lead role as a young Coco who rebels against the excesses of French society and somehow combines a fragile vulnerability with a steely toughness. Not an easy trick to pull off but she does so flawlessly. If I say any more I am likely to spoil it for you, but the filming and everything else about it do not disappoint either. A high point in Tatou's already glittering career and harbinger of more great performances to come.

Magnificent Film.By Dumas (4 reviews) , 01 Dec 2013Fascinating insight to the early life of Coco Chanel. Marvellous film in every respect highly watch able and truly enjoyable only the French can make movie`s of such a high standard like this. Perfect in every respect.
Immensely watchableBy a customer , 03 Nov 2013I loved it but then I love everything French. Audrey Tatou is always immensely watchable and the fashions of the time are amazing.

Audrey Tatou is fantasticBy a customer , 01 Oct 2013She's totally believable and steals every scene she's in. The costumes and scenery are superb and I was totally hooked by the whole film.
Pleasant WatchingBy KickemJenny (19 reviews) , 01 Oct 2013I really like Audrey Tautuo and I really like her role in this she played CoCo very well. At times though the film seemed to drag a little but I enjoyed the rag to riches story and it showed the complexities of her relationship with the gentry and her lover. If you like period drama's you will like this one. But it felt that it kinna didn't get off the ground very much. The costumes are great and Tautuo looks amazing.
Audrey Tautout Wears Outfits IVBy a customer , 13 Sep 2013This film is nearly quite good, but the pacing of the story is all wrong. And the more intriguing aspects of Chanel's life (you know, the Nazi collaboration...) are completely absent. Audrey Tautou represents the Chanel company and you can imagine that the PR people were very happy with this version of the founder's life. Of course, Tautou looks lovely throughout and wears various stylish/quirky outfits. If you're looking for some kind of insight into the evolution of Chanel's style, though, you'll be disappointed. As a fictional love story it's watchable enough, and visually it's pleasing. But the pacing's off and more importantly I don't think it really tells anyone anything about Coco Chanel. (Most of the soundtrack is pretty poor, too.)
